My Poem “Five years ago today”

5 years ago today… I was a poet then and I am still a poet to this day… there was snow to be seen everywhere I looked, but I was not cold… I held up a window and a mirror for others to see into my soul… some things never change, and some things always do… I remember where I was and what I was doing five years ago, but do you? When I think back, I have not changed that much… When I look around at the world as it is now I can see and I can still remember all the things that I have seen and all the things that I have experienced that continue to mean so much. Five years goes by so fast. This is not my first retrospective flash from the past – and I know for a fact that it won't be my last. #improv #poetry #poem #onthefly #me #fiveyears #today

A little improvised poem I just wrote on the fly after looking at this picture of myself from five years ago.
