The Homecoming…

The rusty hinges of the door creak a melancholia of emptiness

abandoned, a veiled gossamer of neglect envelopes it.

Ambivalent emotions embrace me in nostalgia,

I close my eyes, inhale the smattering scents of yesteryears

fragments of my childhood, resplendent with love and laughter fill me.

Fun filled times with playmates in the cart

wheel across the courtyard, echoing merriment,  

driving through the narrow alleys, the many outings in the old car were so cherished

the ambrosial culinary delights from mom’s kitchen permeated my senses.

Itinerant lifestyle, kept me away for good,

night, seemed too dark for the family in waiting.

The once familiar surroundings, today seem distant

walls of my home, do not recognize me anymore.

The people have all gone, only memories linger on

Peals of  laughter,  naughty pranks,

trivial fights, instant forgiveness,

splashing puddles ,screams of joy,

ink stained fingers, crayoned walls,

idling afternoons, comics unlimited

craving for sweetmeats, raiding the kitchen,

insatiable questions, dreams to reach for the sky,

scraped knees, countless friends

tiny delights, miniscule grudges,

vivid imagination, creative minds,

ingenious games, smiling faces,

simple wishes, innocent hearts,

Oh! With the fragrance  that emanates from the carefree souls,

the urge to travel back to the kaleidoscopic world,

sends me on a nostalgic reminiscence,

of treasured memories of childhood days!

 

Overwhelming Emotions

rose

via Daily Prompt: Overwhelming

Flipping through an old diary,

glanced upon a dried rose,

buried under the soiled pages.

It opened  floodgates of memories,

overwhelmed by a sea of emotions,

reminiscing the beautiful love story,

of stolen moments spent with each other ,

hidden from the prying eyes.

The long letters exchanged,

promises made for a lifetime together!

Alas, fate dealt a cruel blow,

making you only a beautiful memory!
