Something I think of (Day 802)

mist of roses   languid waterfalls

nostalgia  trickling  tumbling 

into fathomless teal pools 

choosing  not  choosing 

what to  not to  do  

something I think of you  

when I choose 

my seven reticent lines 

from that once-generous stretch

of time known as ours  

but perhaps more appropriately 

described as: then
