Twin Triplets (No.1) Heritage, Memory - Poem by Valsa George

HERITAGE

A sapling planted long, long ago
That eventually grew and branched into a tree
Whose shade, we savour now

MEMORY

Life, the distance from memory to memory
Sans which, we cease to exist
And sleep in the grave, alive or dead

Topic(s) of this poem: memory

    Sometimes I think there are two types of life on this planet. One is planted and the other has evolved. The botanical and zoological lives other than that of humans is evolved but the human life seems planted by someone. Some times I think there is a very big ellipse and our ellipse is very small and during a certain period the two planets orbiting in the two ellipses, the titanic planet and the mini planet came close to each other and during this period life was planted. If it is so the two will meet again.
    The question remains why the story of Adam and Eve is heard in Sumerians only?
    As far as I understood your poem you have described the zoological life and botanical life as twins. It's a lovely comparison in a beautiful poetic manner.

    its moemory that turns our feelings passion and dreams into a heritage
    the most troublesome and painful practice of psychological chemistry....
    rarely memory blesses our tender hearts and souls
    i wish we could exit without it.....
    past is ever nuisance and annoying.....
