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

And Forever…

Image credit; Shche- Team @ Unsplash

A first dreamy date, basked in the

warmth of sunshine romance,

comes alive with the glint of scented vanilla,

 that wafts with the fragrant scarlet red asters.

Drenched in crimson tides of passion

timeless whispers pen love sonnets

 heart-warming gestures, moor their soul

like wine, their bond matures with age.

Today the old radio plays a nostalgic song,

 silver strands define the receding hairline,

toothless smiles brighten the twilight years

wrinkled hands tether to old pictures,

 visit the boulevard of sepia toned memories.

Joyful reminiscence of the bygone seasons

unwinds a spool of snapshots

 scripting their saga of eternal love.

    This is lovely, Radhika! I really like the way the colour references fade from scarlet and crimson to grey and sepia, and those last two lines are superb. Well-penned 🙂

    Lovely, warm poem, Radhika! Sadly, many couples don’t spend their entire lives together, but I think that is still the ideal. We celebrated my grandparents’ fiftieth anniversary with them quite a few years ago. ❤ Stay well and be happy!

      Thank you Cheryl. Yes, today it’s rare to see couples in this kind of everlasting togetherness. But I have a few couples in my family who have celebrated close to 6-7 decades of happiness together. This one is a tribute to such couples all across ❤️

    Heart warming poem, Radhika. Remembering our radio and how we felt so nice hearing old songs together with our family. Where did those days go, went away with the Radio.

      Thanks Kamal. Oh yes, that was like the golden Era. I was very fond of listening to the radio. Would sit late into the night enjoying the different programs and songs. The radio took me back in time kindling beautiful memories ❤️
