Poem: Layers

Layers

The whispers of time
Sweep along cavernous walls
That speak of old days

Love it, Scott. The title and the image of a canyon make me feel like I've been hearing these whispers for a long while.

Nicely done - time and changes well worded.

This is so beautiful. It feels like wisps of mist to me, as I try to grasp memories and rebuild my life. Gorgeous.
My change is here. Thank you.

Whispers whisper into other ears; somehow, relating two separate entities into loving one another.

Old days distance two ageless lovers; sixteen years apart too far.

Good write.

I love the whispers of time.
I imagine them daring us to change.

Very evocative lines, simple yet reflective. Very nice indeed.

I read this about 10 times. You did not need one more word. 13 words and I feel like an entire era passed through my soul.

Wow, thank you for those words!
