unawares

It catches you unawares

This gravel path you may no longer traverse as a barefoot warrior

These whispers call from inside the walls plastered in current affairs

So far removed from the sing-alongs and ragged teddy bears

A lesson here is learned though you have not enrolled

You are too young for PhD but far too old

For this

For discovering in secret gardens a quiet first kiss

You never travelled thus and in spite of so much other mileage

Every morning catches you unawares
