In my absence
dreams flourish,
friendships form,
enterprises thrive

In my absence
opponents clash,
decisions falter,
differences grow

All that was viable,
all that motivated,
all that defined…

Now vapours –
truths forgotten –
in my absence.

(Jilly is hosting is in the dVerse pub tonight where repetition is the challenge.  I am combining this with Fandago’s Word of the Day, opponent,  and Ragtag Community’s prompt, friend.)

  1. Sobering truths in this and I like your unique use of repetition. It made me think of All That Jazz, which, of course, changes the usage of ‘that’, but somehow still works in this one brain 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
