Solitaire #Writephoto

The water cleansed,

grime and dirt from the Past,

but tiny pebbles

hurt my feet bare.

 

Stepping out to meet the Present

was a respite much-needed,

but the rough terrain

did not much care.

 

I looked for warmth

to envelop my existence

But found no companion

to love and share.

 

I walked alone

on thorny paths

and reached the Future,

only ‘coz I did dare.

 

Time challenges one

to smoothen edges

and polish a stony life

to a solitaire.
