Within the light

“Rising from the past, my shadow is running in silence to meet me” – Anna Akhmatova

I lost myself
Travelling inwards
On that journey
Age prescribes

Now I’m older
I pack a lot lighter
Then my younger self
Knew how

The tunnel hums
A hollow tune
and keeping time

Within its yellow vortex
A portal revealed itself
Nothing was lost
Just quiet for a little while
