Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

Memories!

The present fades through the eons

reopening the doors , thoughts drift in

embraced by reminiscent recollections

images linger before the eyes

echoes with the laughter of happy times

a fragrance of sublime warmth

impregnates the air

along with some

remnants of the dark days too

under the musty cobwebs of time

the mind meanders back into the alleys

clings on to those experiences

be it coated with a tinge of bitterness

or laced with wistful moments,

for everything that passes

leaves behind memories

unique and special to each one

intricately woven into timeless treasures!!

    Past defines a person!
    Am I stretching importance of “past” too far?

      Agree Abhay that past defines a person to a large extent. But one should not let it overwhelm the present!

    The true treasure of life, the past we cannot go back seems like a distant dream, the present and longing for the future makes the journey exciting. A gem Radhika.

    Love how your memories stir so many thoughts Radhika…reflections that remind us of our journey through the corridors of life!
    Memories are like wafts of breeze that make the dark moments too smile, as the amalgamation of happy and not so happy hours leave us wondering how we could add some beauty to our lives…how well we could handle them and those that slipped by chiseled our personalities. 🙂

      Thank you Balroop for putting across your thoughts so beautifully. I believe memories are our lifeline, they help us relive those blissful moments and evolve from the not so pleasant ones.

    Great poem Rahika,

    indeed past is very important for us, humans. I believe that we should learn from our past a lot, but we must be careful, and we do not need to burden much with her,because we must live in the present moment ! Thank you
