Sometimes
Old memories return
Like soldiers wounded
And ravaged by war.

journey_400Moments
Of past happiness
And tenderness,
Victories and joys
All tinged by moments
Of conflict, loss,
Disappointments
And sadness
That have played
Out through
Our lives.

Uncurled,
Stretching out
Across the sky
Reaching
And entwining,
The blue with
Green shoots
Wrapping around
Old dying roots.

The bloom
Of the present
Trembling in the breeze
Under golden sunlight,
The theatre of life
Playing out on
The stages
Of our own lives.


The living and dying,
The passion and laughter,
The anger and joy,
And all the memories
Made collecting
Like rare jewels
In a treasury.

To be opened
And re-examined
In a new light;
Some memories
Refashioned
Whilst others
Are buried in full
Ceremony
To the chants
Of Kyrie Eleison.

We leave our
Old memories
Behind us
And set sail
Cleaving
The waves
With the sun
On the horizon.

Accepting
Our journey in life,
The realisation that
The journey has
Always been
The destination.
