Day 4 of 40: Snapshot

Day 4 of 40: Snapshot

Tarmac drive
Leading to uneventful building
Trees frame left and right
Long road stretching either side
Holding mummy’s hand
Or someone else’s perhaps?

Banal, boring, bland
And yet so vivid
So memorable
A snapshot in an early mind
A lone sparkle
Glimmering in the dark

The beginning
Of a piecing together
Of this person called me
Of a weaving of images
Of faces and heartaches
Of meanings and messages

The beginning
Of one who remembers, who imagines,
Who is haunted and who hopes
Of one who loses and finds himself
Down the corridors of time.
