Remember - Poem by M.J. Lemon

On a cool night
a full moon
inspects toddler's toys
strewn across the yard

a light bulb
burns on the porch
a wisp of steam
from a kettle
slithers past
the screen door
for a tango
with a line of
fog crawling
so slow indoors

small things claim
grand memories
when time stops
and peace reigns

Topic(s) of this poem: calm, peace, remembrance

    Even small scenes and natural occurrences of no great significance can leave a lot of impressions when the mind is calm and composed. The same scenes might not impress us or even seem repulsive if the mind is perturbed. So everything depends on our mental mood. Beautiful poem....! 10 on 10 (Report)Reply

    Thank you so very much, Valsa. Yes, I am always amazed by how great an impact small things can have, and how long lasting those memories are.

    And thats how memories remind us, just like a smoke of past revisit air..thick, thin and disappear...it may gone but cold or warm lingers! (Report)Reply
