Past Gone


It was winter …she could see the cold in its frosty glory settled on the scenery outside

the time had come 

she opened the door and walked in the snow that evening right where the icy pond lay 

and placed the small paper boat on the placid still surface , the little boat carried a small

piece of paper and on it were the words goodbye

good bye she said softly and turned back 

At home , she blew out the candle in room 

sleep came soundlessly and effortlessly that night

The next day was bright and cheery …the sun was shining brightly by now the pond would have melted…

She was ready for work and a new phase

Sam came out to greet her , she smiled Come she said lets work on that new project

and together they stepped outside 

The Boat of her past had sailed away from her harbor
