Today's poem was inspired by this photo, 'A fleeting glimpse', shot by Robert Rath.
A fleeting glimpse
I have felt shifting moods of an old miner's cottage. Fascinated.
I have heard muffled shuffling in a hotel hallway. Curious.
I have smelt sharp odours coming and going in a house where a child died. Intrigued.
I have sensed I'm unwelcome in parts of this land. Subdued.
It's the occasional fleeting glimpse of late loved ones
that rattles me most.
