    Description:
       Poem-lamenting the passage of time, and the drifting back towards the past...the INEVITABILITY of eventually, almost against our will, drifting back toward the past.

    dotsThe Past Seems But A Dim Dream, An Airy Splendordots
    -------------------------------------------


    The past seems but a dim dream now,

    an airy splendor

    gilded and powdered with the eternal sunshine and warmth

    of youth.

    Where reality once existed, once reigned

    now that physicality has been roughly,

    rudely replaced by the vagueness of foggy

    memory-of half-images, muffled sounds and delights fading into obscurity-

    realities-moments; countless moments-are recorded and stored away, but why should

    my life-my EARLY life-

    appear to be a dream and what

    is a dream but mere shadows and fog and fakery?

    Is that what a memory has become too, then?

    Whatever became of those times-moments and events which are

    easily retrieved and those whose gentle retrieval (even whose

    crass, abrupt retrieval) and extrication is an impossibility

    or a millennial ordeal?

    What life is lost in dream?

    What past, whose past but becomes one?

    Who escapes it?
