HR 5 – Text Prompt

Text Prompt

You find a time capsule buried in the backyard of your new home (or anywhere else, depends on you). What’s in it? How old is it or its probable story is up to the poet.


In the backyard,
behind the apple tree,
I wanted a garden.

I found you instead.

Your story untold.
Your loved ones still looking.
Your heart decomposed.

Let’s go,
into the sunshine,

away from the past.
