ancient history - poem-a-day

For you,


It's ancient history.


Nearly impossible to conceive that it ever


really happened


Something you only hear stories about; 


the Renaissance, the Egyptians


maybe even ancient Greece.


 


The only physical evidence


is in ruins.


Yes.


That fits, I suppose.


 


For me, however,


It's a current event.


Still burning in my memory


Emotions still raw from


experience


9/11, Hurricane Katrina


Maybe a Japanese tsunami.


 


And it hits me in the same way:


A giant wave covering me


and carrying me


away.


 


I'm not going to get to 30 poems in 30 days, but for some reason this popped in my head when I saw ancient so I decided to RECord it:)
