A World Beyond Reach

Postcards taped to walls

Viewing the world from a kitchen chair

Sights and sounds in the background

His imagination creating vivid memories

 

Tales to be told

Of misadventures not to be had

Recalling conversation never spoken

Yet voices clear and vivid as if yesterday

 

Rustic tapas on small plates

Bottles of wine from out of the way vineyards

The pallet’s memory just as strong

Of flavors never before savored

 

Distant gazes interrupted

Two worlds collide, bring him back

Staring at pictures on walls

A reminder of a world beyond his reach
