Lost things

For Sacha Black’s challenge to write about Lost Things using exactly 52 words.


All that slips behind

separated by a night,

time, words, loves,

the quality of the clouds,

is gone,

forever unattainable,

and pours over the edge of the world

in a flood of memory, fiery red,

cool blue and mysterious green,

gold as sunbeams on summer grass,

silver as fish scales in moonlight.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
