Poetic Thoughts - by C.W. Pruitt II
posted: Mar. 29, 2019

Poetic Thoughts header

I am an old-fashioned kinda guy. My grandfather was old-fashioned (and he was 80 years older than me). Being heavily influenced by him, you can say that I am a throwback. I spend a lot of time lamenting what once was.
The two poems below represent an effort to bridge the past with the present:

changing
re-arranging
drawing from the past
traditions updated
a new die is cast
yesterday is over
today is fading fast
solutions are needed
that will forever last

         til made
         to fade
         then begin
         born again . . .

Remembering
Dismembering
Reflections
from way back
when
times were better
to the letter
and to the nth degree

Perhaps drawing
from our personal histories
and bringing together
what we remember
will make us
a little more free
