In The Fading Light

By Kaitlyn Marlowe

The fading light
Falling over the field of memory
Years in shadow
Years reflected in the glassy eye of a silent pond
Years in retrospect
Driving in reverse over gravel roads
A greyed-out dead-end sign
This is the past
This is the present
The future is bright and the shade passes over yesterday
And I am standing with one foot in the light.
