Return To Black Rock Springs

Poetic Asides November 2013 Poem-A-Day Challenge – Day 25: “remix a poem you previously wrote for one of the November challenges”

Return To Black Rock Springs

(a remix of “The Trail To Black Rock Springs” 11/3/13)

A trail
I’ve walked before
seems different in this light.
The passage of time dismantles
dubious memories.

A wall,
behind which stood
a hotel spa for town folk,
has no reminders save decay
of ruined majesty.

A thread
in my thinking
unravels to discover
all that nature has reclaimed
is given back a hundred-fold
in images unseen.

Footsteps
recall laughter,
silence supplies the music.
Contemplation heals the ailments
of all who venture here.
