The storms displace the world
without washing us away.
A few centuries pass.
The air fills with the same sound,
with the same smell and memories,
love of our life. In the front yard
we see some familiar faces, again,
and the lilac is studded with rays.
The world is lost, but we are young again.
We try to win our life back, we say
thank you past for lessons—
we are ready, that is the point
of breathing, many have gone forever,
as in old news, saying a few messages
we don't remember.
