Today’s Short #Poem 123

My picture is of Blake’s dividers –
the right point, a few weeks hence
the left, back a month or two,
or more, maybe

How far back do you want to go?
The danger when wringing out
the best from history
is the side-effect of sterile dryness

Many are not so lucky –
a fractured dream, dwelt in,
not ditched and replaced –
doesn’t give much to remember
