There Was A Time

There was a time when meadows&forests&streams greeted me each day and I would find myself bathed in dappled light but those childhood places are now just a dream for the years have changed the landscape and those places are no more yet, in other places the sun still comes&goes and birds still sing joyous songs&flowers still sway to fill my heart with bliss . . . ______________________ July 17, 2020 Poetry/Verse/There Was a Time Copyright Protected, ID 20-1268-981-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Written for Strand New (11) contest sponsor, Brian Strand First Place

Love this Constance, and why because it takes me back, and takes me to the very places you have written about. Love your dappled light...

Harry,thanks for visiting, sadly I found out the hard way that we can never go back to those dappled places, better to keep the memory and find new dappled places _Constance

Arturo, you are right and I am trying very, very hard to live in the moment and let go of the past but it keeps creeping into my life, I have found word search puzzles help distract, sounds silly but it works _Constance
