Wishing Well

I wished for that moment to last
and then wished for you to come back.
Wishing doesn’t make it so
down where silver and copper grow
and that odd heartbeat sound
in the places wishes go unbound.

    Thank you, Nige. The photo was taken 5 or 6 years ago at a park in town. Looking back at it this evening, it made me think of those carefree times.
