Memories Garden Poem by Shihabudheen K J

Memories Garden

Rating: 5.0

what are memories?
i asked myself! !
got some questions instead of solutions!

Are they just passing seasons!
unknown mysteries and uninvited pain beyond time line! ?
ignited moments happened without our knowledge?
silent waves swept across our ancestral cornfields?
play and drive of whom we say'god'?
just the cool saying 'once upon a time! '

A historian told me its history of wars
A doctor recommended nothing less than a brain scan
A soldier showed me bullets he failed to shoot
A priest made a deep sigh'i forgot to marry! '

A teacher recollected her noble years of words
A mother remarked its long waited first cry of her baby
A baby found it in the warmth of her mom's hugs and dad's care
A nun travelled through her silent years of patience and service

Finally the poet remarked
'emotions recollected in tranquility'
not verses but memories,
he should be corrected!

memory is something more than the recollected emotions, as you have written here, but the examples are...No comments...
