Life Before…

Life before…
The flamboyant tree sat on the hill.
The breeze blew its red flowers painted against the cloudless blue sky.

Life before…
The brook filled with water when it rained.
Turning and weaving through the houses in the valley.

Life before…
The fireflies buzzed in the tall grass.
The lizards scampered through the shrubs in search of their meal.

Life before…
Children laughed and played.
Mothers kissed their children goodnight.

Life before…
An old man sat on the rocking chair.
He remembered the times that were, and the ones that wouldn’t be.

Life before…
Was just as it will be like, life after.
