Haibun – Voice & Watch

 

album

Cleaning the cupboard this morning, I glance upon some old albums. Since the onset of digital cameras, the old pictures simply have been lying inside for a long time. Glad to have some leisure time at hand, I decide to walk down the memory lane with the many photo albums. Wiping off the fine layer of dust settled on them, I sit back to enjoy the journey ,which house a treasure trove of memories.

Flipping the pages of the album

I watch beautiful memories unfold

the sounds of joy come alive

I am lost in nostalgia

of perfect moments captured

for eternity!

In response to Colleen’s poetry challenge # 50, Voice & Watch

      I am also from the old school Divya. I still prefer the traditional mode of photography compared to the digital one. Do spend some time with your albums. It’s truly refreshing 😇

      That’s life I guess. But at least we have those moments captured. Thank you for sharing your thoughts 🙂

    This is one job I love to do, go back and revisit some beautiful memories of the past – most of them forgotten. Sure you had a lovely time, Radhika.
