The Time Slip Castle #WritePhoto

Never before, have I been to this castle

time slips, and I find myself there

a ghost among ghosts

I reach out, grasping air

Time folds back, I am here and now

Yet, the memories remain

both sweet and bitter

of bows and arrows and painted men

There was magic in those days

I need only to close my eyes

To go back, again.
