Weds poetry prompt: ‘Another Year’

(Beautiful artwork credit to Brian Slawson)

Yesterday’s prompt: Write a ‘year in the life’ poem.

Another Year

Another year
Same life
Another few hundred apples
Fall from the garden tree
With a hard, loud THUD
Onto that same old ground.
The space around us stays still
While our heads keep spinning.

Wealth continues to elude us
With dreams under construction
And desire to escape burning brighter
With each passing day
Which then fade into weeks,
Then melt into months
Until another year passes
And we ride round yet again.

But each time we spiral
This all-too familiar loop
We get just a little bit closer
To the sunset town beyond
Where dreams come true
And humdrum is left behind
In the dust of years past
Never to be seen again.
