Rear View Mirror – A Weekly Prompted Poem 2/15/2021

Here is my poem for last week’s prompt, Rear View Mirror:

You will remember a moment,
back in the twenties,
when everything felt okay,
when all looked well in the world.

That moment will stand out
against all the chaos and fear
that was the constant focus,
that kept us all home, apart.

You will remember a time,
back in the twenties,
when so many seemed opposed to you
and far away from what you hold deer.

But they are not memories now,
they are real fears, real separations,
real ways in which we may do harm
or irreparable good.
