Future Progressive

When I was 12,
I lost a book one day.
I never knew how
it happened.
I was cycling on my way
to school, when
a woman I didn’t know
looked at me.
She was me. I know that now.

A moment ago I saw the book fall
off the back of my bike, when
I passed me in the street.
It fell in front of my two, older, feet.

I took the book home with me.
Inside it, between page 12 and 13
I found this note:
“One day when I am grown
I want a bookcase that I like,
all for myself, with all my books in it.”

So that is where I put the book.
in the bookcase that I own,
I placed it on the highest shelf.

  1. I love this.

    It is a poem I could read time and time again and appreciate it every time.



  2. What a great thought process! I love it.

    Love and hugs
