Day 72: Time and Poetry

What stories can I tell today
Ones that speak to no one
Or common tales of love and loss
That lies in the blood of every soul.

Shall I speak of days past
Memories tickling the subconscious
Smiles of bittersweet joy
Eyes lost in the distance.

Do I write of the future
Of what is to be
Lives sought and found
the ever growing dream.

Can I linger in the present
Captivate you with my here and now
Stories of the world told
As it unfolds.

In this moment,
What stories do I tell you?
ones created
Those only lived
Or shall I mix them both
And serve you a feast
Of imagination and reality?
