Comet Tales

Taking steps forward

A comet speeding into the future

while being unable to walk backwards;

A comet tail is only so long

it’s the intricate dance of life.

.

Trailing behind me in my dance

are tails of memory

with baggage tied to the ends.

Long circuits make everything seem

like there is a beginning and an end,

but there really isn’t.

Will I ever file those contents

into my recent memory?

.

My path split long ago

but today fate takes me

takes a path parallel

to the one previously traveled.

Has the comet made full circle?

 .

No.

The other vessels of space

are simply orbiting past

the comet’s trajectory.

Looking sideways I see

how my old path has progressed

without me.

.

But just like

the comet

can’t change its own path,

neither can I hop off my road

onto the one below.
