Back to the Future

Here’s to a sustained absence– a year’s ‘holiday’ in which much was explored

Continents crossed, countries traveled and toured and remembered.

(Some half forgotten, to make space, shall we say).

,A series of photos spanning space and time, not the full truth

Nor a lie; neither a complete record, a far cry.

Snapshots of people moving in a far-from perfect world–

The smog of China; a rough-shod  street in Rome–

But for all its imperfections, a perfect place of storm.

For all the impending doom, the threats of near disaster

There is still much of tranquility, beauty, repose.

Somewhere in South America, the deep-end of Patagonia

A wheel came unstuck; a back broke, the camera froze.

Back to bed, and back to the future–

I see slowly. The things once familiar, now new.
