Random thoughts, poems, jottings, and as it says, musings. About anything and everything!

Today's poem was inspired by the Twilight Zone episode of the same name, of a stressed out businessman whose car needs a repair, and while waiting, walks to his nearby home town, but also walks back into the past of his lost childhood.
A car broken down, a walk along A dusty road into time long past Long forgotten, the familiar song The carousel, now seen at last
Merry-go rounds of distant youth Ice cream from the corner shop A weary man seeking the truth Just where time seems to stop
A wisp of memory, of a happier day And he sees himself, a carefree lad Laughing ghosts of home this way The businessman now feels so sad
Into the twilight zone, and going home We never leave, however far we roam
