growing-up
our castle fortress,
it looked out upon the Med
once ’twas a house, bland…
then magic – mysterious,
erosion created…
our whimsical pink refuge:
today’s pirate cove,
tomorrow’s deep space station,
we’d hidden from spies,
we’d fought green and red dragons!
ah the season’s pass…
we don’t know how it happened
life became smaller
our refuge seemed to shrink-up
our games changed by then
we hid to smoke cigarettes
steal a kiss or two…
the season’s passed on,
poof! all the magic was gone…
no castle fortress,
just  a sea-side derelict
lying in the cove, over there.

in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
