Memories in my hand..

Yes, this poem was one of my first few posts in this blog. I'm deleting that post and re-posting with a few changes here and there :)




A long forgotten letter,
With words faded…
Cos so many times they
Were, by my eyes, caressed…

A single red rose
With petals dried…
Nestled in my diary
Still smelling of July…

A sea shell locket
so pretty and shiny…
From the walk on the beach…
Still can hear the sound of the sea…

A shining rock
From the calm stream…
Ages have passed
But I still feel its gleam…

An old picture
Us, smiling, together…
Was it yesterday or a lifetime back?
Still such happy memories it stirs…

A brown twig
From our walk in the woods…
Can still smell the night…
Oh! How I wish the time stood…

But time didn’t stand…
It rushed past…
And I am left with my memories…
Holding them in my hands… hoping they will last…

Shakespearean? Not.
Come visit me regardless!
I want your haiku...

Ok, that may not be your type of poetry, but hopefully it will entice you to try your hand at it!

If you have time, stop by "my place" and take part in my first ever "Silly Haiku Wednesday"!

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

The "..." takes a lil bit away from the nostalgia. Think about that. Other than well structured. :)
