writer's island prompt

in another lifetime,,
we would spend
the day together
eating ice cream
out of the box
with two spoons.
in another lifetime,,
we would lay in the grass
talking about how nice it
would be if everyone
were as brilliant as us.
in another lifetime,,
we would stay up late
talking about all the
things that mattered
most to us,, in a world
where nothing mattered at all.
in another lifetime,
we would find each other
in a maze of people
wondering how we
could have almost
missed each other,
in another lifetime.

Intriguing how the words fall back upon themselves. I liked this - esp. the eating ice cream out of the box... for me, that WAS another lifetime... :)

it makes me feel that a lifetime is not a singular act,, but rather a play,, with many scene and character changes along the way....
