IN COUNTRY… DISCOVERIES

Left Vietnam again today mate
only thirty two years too late

The night is as invisible as ever…
but there are more shadows
The daylight is filtered green now as then...
but the green is grey

Found my youth…
and it was ancient
Found my heroes…
but they are eternal ghosts
Found old friends…
when they were new

Found the future…
alive
with birth pains of the past

Found today…
and it is forever
