    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.

    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! ❤
