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

    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.

    Franci, what a fabulous message. I like the brevity of this form. With fewer syllables, we have to find the perfect word. You certainly did! ❤
