A Past Life Dream by Glenda Higgins


A thousand walking soldiers

Searching in the night

A thousand flickering fires

Blazing through the fight

I know I’ve never been there


But I know what I must know

I’ve watched it out my window

In a time long ago

The searching stained glass arches

Blazing in the light


As I watched from my hidden window

The troubles in the night

Beyond the rusty hinges

Between the now and then

A fearful door that still won’t let me in


Not opening any farther

To the now that was once then

Moving on stubborn hinges

Surrendering a moment

From a time long ago


I had a view of unknown streets

Expired with the age

Arching stain-glass windows

Glowing in the light

Of sunshine long forgotten


In a distant foreign land

That I have always known

Calling in the night time

Troubling me so

Calling in the distance


Never letting go

About the Author 

Glenda spent her early work in libraries – ten years in various positions, including cataloguing, which launched her on a favorite pastime of reading everything under the sun.

 Her start as a poet surprised her. She took a poetry-writing course. Two hundred poems wrote themselves in a furious manner, in two weeks.  This led to performing poetry in cafes and on the radio and about three hundred more poems.
