  1. “Begone makes way for now” PROFOUND!

  2. Powerfully penned to another new poetry form\1 Well done! 🙂 <3

  3. I like the 3rd line–“bygone” really doesn’t have much choice but to make way for “now” 🙂

  4. This is beautifully done Eugenia

  5. “answers purpose questions”…very profound, Eugenia.

  6. Reblogged this on Fae Corps Inc.

  7. Yep – liked this … 🤗

  8. Your piece reminds me of the current political climate (at least in the US).
    The present is going gung-ho, while the past that shouldn’t be forgotten, still brews –
    depending on who is looking, with or without success.

    • Yep! It definitely depends on whos looking and listening, and who will be responsible for their actions. Thank you for commenting.
