DP: Turn Back Time – A Question of Moments by Ruswa Fatehpuri

A Question of Moments

by Ruswa Fatehpuri

 

In a life made up of moments
Of which I was but one
What will you remember
When I am dust and gone?

Will the page on which I met you
The page on which we kissed
Be well thumbed and worn
Or passed over and missed?

Will you ever turn to us
And plot the path we took?
Will you smile or will you weep
Or will you never look?

Will you tell your children
Of all that we forsook?
Or will we be forgotten
And torn out of the book?

Daily Prompt on Haiku, one for each of five days:

 

mon

alarm ringing change

dawn, the sabbatical ends

for sleep leaden eyes

 

tues

rise coffee phoenix!

drowsy afternoon ashes

reincarnation

 

weds

packed trains, laden minds

blank faced in contemplation

filing our regrets

 

thurs

work hard, get married

buy a house, and buy a car

have kids, have kids. die

 

fri

i tie my own chains

freedom embraced in farewell

a wage slave again

 

END
