Yesterday has passed away
Embedded beneath surface, buried
On ocean’s basin, undelivered messages
Floating on gentle water tides

Within green bottles
Basking in the sun, skin-suntanned

fossilized bones, dry skeleton
rotten memories, saved beneath the crust
History long lost, frozen smiles – nonstop
Frosted heartache, preserved through winter.
Resurrected emotions.

Lingering scents
Familiar voices
Long forgotten funeral
Excavated by modern mechanical machines
Beasts on four giant feet
Angry claws, scavenging the field
Scaring deep furrows

Skulls found
Missing clues
Hidden secrets on toothless skulls
Gliding slowly through the museum
Down ancient hallways

Saluting still pictures and images
Cold sculptures and dead statues
Indeed yesterday has gone with no
Forensic evidence.
Yesterday is dead, bury it in peace.
