WEP Submission - AUGUST 2017 CHALLENGE, REUNIONS, A Poem, by Pat Garcia

 

August Badge
Class Reunion aug 15 2017
Reunions,

A manifestation that time doesn’t stand still,

Ever revealing the plots of our lives that connect

And the plot holes that never did.

Exposing dreams that didn’t stand the test of our faith,

Revealing our folly for foolish thinking,

Which led to dumb occurrences we now regret.

Reunions reunite us and keep us moving on.

 

Are you still the dreamer you once were?

How did the world greet you?

What did you do?

Where have you been?

Questions asked by so many soulful hearts that have missed it all.

Years where dreams have lain in slumber,

Like the embers of dead ashes that have lost their flame.

 

Reunions,

The sound of mighty rushing wind,

Ushered in by hope and expectation,

Shaped by years of experience,

Tamed by patience,

Extolled by the bell of victory,

When determination rings out its win.

The same bell tolls as a bell of sorrow,

As it eulogises its tribute to a life expired. 

 

Are you still the dreamer you once were?

How did the world greet you?

What did you do?

Where have you been?

Questions asked by so many soulful hearts that missed it all.

Years where dreams laid in slumber

Like the embers of dead ashes that lost their flame.

 

Reunions,

An old friend, no longer friendly,

An old arch enemy now a comrade,

A teacher who stood the age of time still there,

A building filled with the ghost cries,

Heartaches

Pleasures,

And disappointments.

A pang of sadness for those who have heard the bugle call,

Whose lives are now recorded;

The final judgment made.

 

Are you still a dreamer?

How does the world greet you?

What do you do?

Where have you been?

Questions asked by so many soulful hearts that miss it all.

Their dreams lay in slumber

Like the embers of dead ashes that have lost their flame.
