Visiting the Past

The past is open to us

It requires no machine

For in our memory

We can recall what we’ve seen

 

Our lives roll out before us

All that’s come a fore

With a smile we can remember

Events we adore

 

Our loves and fond encounters

To visit in our minds

Requiring just moment

Never leaving them behind

 

So time travel is a concept

Not made just for science fiction

But a reality to us all

With just a little reflection

Inspiration Call: Time Travel

Time travel was a genre of both literature and film that my wife, Dianne enjoyed.  She marveled at concept and adored Dr Who, Time Traveller’s Wife, Somewhere in Time, and so many more.  I am blessed now by the memory of having shared these with her, and as the poem suggests revisiting the life we had together.
