Sunset Like Golden

i will not claim 
it's gold, but 
it looks golden.

a sky like this
i saw 
three years ago.

i can't advise 
you how to live 
your life,

i'm not quite sure
on how to live
my own.

i see him playing
with the new 
train set,

and wonder about
the world we're
leaving him.

so far, he's escaped
the hellish pandemic.
we hold our breath.

  1. Thank you beth!

    A friend who I’ve had many coffees seems to have thought I was the child playing with a train. I explained that it is about a two year old I know. (My own childhood is slightly more advanced. I swear!)
