Shorter Still

Shorter Still

Brief, this time here
when viewed in retrospect
a lifetime to shape a future
with no end in sight

Shorter now, it seems
the blast of bygone images
little more than a time-lapse
details fewer each day

Shorter still, ahead
the end, there, on the horizon
the time to land former goals
also slipping away

The five word prompts for The Secret Keeper’s Weekly Writing Prompt # are brief, end, shape, land and blast.
