Where I once lived

P.C :- Rebecca M. Douglass

Where I once lived, I know not,

Where fringes of cusp of dawn kisses salty fragrances of sea,

Where clouds clad the mountains like a snowy curtain,

Where time reaches its mighty zenith,

Where pink of sky meets purple at twilight,

Where I once lived, I know not,

Where I was a mere whisper,

Where I was just a remembrance,

Where I was a dark shadow even?

Where I was camouflaging, a reflection of self!

  1. You have used repetition so well here, to emphasise the yearning to know ‘where you once lived’ – this embodies the mystery of where we came from, and I like the use you’ve made of alliteration and assonance in phrases such as ‘clouds clad’ – great sound-poetry!
