A Window Of Time 2 - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

I looked
out of the window of time
where I once saw my mothers eyes

To my surprise
there she was again
She put her hand to the glass
She said put your hand to mine

I couldn't understand
how this could be
Then I realised
I was back as a child

She said son
your going to meet someone
She's going to change your life
She's going to have your child
Just like a lily flower
She's going to make you smile

Now as a man
I sometimes look out of the window and smile
I tell my daughter lily
of the time I saw a ghost
that looked just like her nan

    You Sir have a grace that escapes so many but here the eloquence of a deft wordsmith delivering visceral and palpable emotions free of cliche and contrived sentimentality. Onto 3.

    your theme is fascinating. I ve read your works as you request..I owe you thanks for reading mine.
    Each poet writes in his own style
    I am a die hard formalist.
    I rarely try to write free style
    my muse begs me to desist.

    She says I need the discipline
    That is imposed by formality
