Strange Thing.

Strange thing to appear
A gentle presence
You come around
Nudge me soft
At how it be
Like arriving bird
Swooping down
Twitter away

Strange thing you leave
Make a void
With vacant why
Needs no answer
Smoothes you down
On merry go round
Spin a tale
When how and why
It will arrive again

Strange thing forgotten
A place in time
Always there
Try as you might
To see again
That strange thing
Playing its game

    Beautiful work. Unfortunately I can’t publish it at the RPG because it doesn’t conform to the rule that written work must be in some way related to Remodernism. Nevertheless I wanted to congratulate you on a very moving piece of writing.
