make-believe

make-believe

These grooves worn into the dirt

are tracks of a well known make-believe

so practiced now that the walls on either side

seem like distant horizons

and the gentle slope further down goes unnoticed

Light fading is only a gathering dusk

to be broken when the new day comes

and no doubt it will come

so walk further on this path

and dream of the light

that must surely be waiting at the end of it all

  1. Really nice piece Mitch. I have missed reading everyone’s work. A piece of light at the end of the road. Very nicely done. I really liked these lines:

    Stay safe and blessed my friend. Hugs Joni
