Valsa George


Exodus Poem by Valsa George


Trotting over dried up dreams
Familiar terrains swim past view
Again, no looking back!
The unknown stretches far ahead
Behind the hills, muffled cries die down
Leaving soundless echoes in the alley of the ages

    A leaving of or migration of some type.
    Over dried up dreams indicates to me one of age.
    The unknown stretches far ahead would be eternity.
    The muffled cries are the mourning wails of left behind living that die down
    and the soundless echoes are the thoughts and memories we leave behind
    connecting living and dead in the alley of the ages. (Report) Reply
