Forward. Or At Least Onward

The future, when it becomes the present, rarely resembles the vision it presented in the past.

The Age of Aquarius has passed
into the House of the Rising Sun;
sold her diamond Future to the Past
for a cut of same ol', same ol' Fun
and the Light of her once shining stars
is now occulted
in the penumbra of Reality
leaving her unable to provide,
or perhaps, we, unable to perceive,
that golden Utopian existence
we looked for Her to disseminate.

Emanations of Illumination
juxtaposed
with machinations
of on-marching Time and migrations
of the Aging inhabitants of that
carefree presentation of Life
now produce but a
Surrealistic Painting
devoid of the Imaginations
that pervaded a once festive Celebration.
