In a Journal of the Mind

Paragons revisited
Through threads of silken wax
As time remembers golden days
With visions no longer there

Each moment once remembered
Outlasting real events
That once had frozen entries
In a journal of the mind

Passing through a vortex
Sustained by fantasies
Of eras long passed over
In timelessness revealed

History’s long forgotten
Passages of flights
Through mountains of remembrance
That once resembled life

Jazz and understanding
And values thrown away
Each decade now discarded
In a marching band parade

Of virtues once regarded
And rules held in a glass
Revealed with empty precision
And followed without regard

Eras once remembered
Now hidden on a shelf
With dust encrusted volumes
In a journal of the mind
