mirage

mirage

A Poem by annie lee

 


looking back through the years


is like looking at distant mountains in the desert.


heat ripples your vision


like a filter


softening the rough edges


hiding the sharp blades of regret.

and the mountains somehow don't seem as high and treacherous to climb than then did at the time...

we think things were easier then....but maybe they weren't---retrospect is always kinder.
