Old dreams

This quadrille is for the Secret Keeper’s writing prompt. The words this week are:



In this age of darkness

is it wisdom or folly

to climb to heights we cannot see?

Does happiness wait beyond the clouds

or is it gone,

lost in the slipstream of our eager flight,

a flash of blue and gold of old dreams?

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.

  1. A lovely philosophical poem, Jane, but I can’t imagine not hoping and dreaming. I agree with others above that the image is perfect,
    Also, I’d forgotten the word “slipstream,” which I really like. 🙂
