fragile dreams of summer twilight

drifting through a patient mind

quietly awaiting a secluded place

in pale dreams of happier times

where faded memories linger

along the hills we used to climb

run the ghosts of our laughter

fading back to antiquated photographs

of a more pleasing place in time...

            snatched moments, frozen in time and stuck in either albums or in gilded frames... the inspiration for these fine words is clear... and as I leave them I feel more than just a little sad.... Neville
