pages turn

pages turn

they are the pages of old

dust flies as each one turns over

memories of the past

that we chose to never revisit

 

pages burn

the hottest blue flames

spitting sparks in all directions

the book so hot it falls to the floor

engulfing the world

 

a fiery ball of fire

 

pages are written

new memories spilling ink over blank pages

each word a product of the past

the old

the bad

 

both become products of the future

 

but both are ignored

our dust covered memories are seldom untouched

and the piles of ashes our memories create linger only by the bitter smell of stale smoke that refuses to leave

 

by exploring the pages that make up our lives

we can create even better memories

“Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone. And do not be troubled about the future, for it has yet to come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.” – Ida Scott Taylor
