Looking Forward through a Hazy PastA Poem by Sharon Miller Bolander
If this poem seems somewhat hazy and confusing yet makes you think, I've accomplished my goal. Looking forward is often not a clear view when life's past seems hazy.
Looking Forward through a Hazy Past
Our planet family listened
With ears sometimes tuned carelessly.
Can we hear the dried tears of generations past?
With journal pieces quoting
The writing on the wall,
Can we smell the flavor of lost words escaping comprehension?
Yet nothing’s explained
From that infinite wisdom few have gained.
Can we touch the dust of death and suffering?
Or see some truth contrasting confusion along the path toward tomorrow?
