Distance And Time - Poem by Tom Squires

There is a road not covered here, that lays upon the shadow land, continues for a thousand years, prepared before the breaking dawn, of clover fields in endless song, from memory entwined by youth, and stepping on to cobblestones, that we could hear the sound of feet, so swift to chase the glimpse of years, upon the face we call our own.

    You definitely have a rhythmic flow to your poem, it's soothing, lilting song takes us along, dancing to your tune. Imagery is superb, I can hear the feet stepping on the cobblestones within my mind. Very unique style you have, I love it. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
