Dreaming through the twilight

28 Jul

That dream returns
To my eyes wide open
Memories churn
From aeons ago

Across the meadows
Through fences broken
Our scampering feet
Stop where the waters flow

Holding hands
We wait for a token
From the ripples
And the molten sun

And then we dive
Our past forgotten
And a story ends
Where it had begun.

    This is beauuuuuuuutiful!!! I love it! And the rhyme though completely flawless is almost unnoticed because it flutes effortlessly, just as the rich images u bring to life. Lovely!

      Thank you Kellie. It’s almost compulsive with me, that I have to get it to rhyme. Not that I spend a lot of time on that. Luckily for me, it comes without too much effort. But I do want to be able to write poetry , without feeling the need to make it rhyme. Will get it right , some day:-)

    I love this.
    I wonder if one CAN recapture those feelings?

    This is a lovely remembrance of innocent pleasures, of friendship and the days when it seemed nothing was more important than dipping your toes in the water… loved it. Peaceful. Thanks so much, Nadira! Peace, Amy

      Thanks Amy. I’m down nostalgia lane quite a lot, sometimes about things that didn’t even happen but was part of my imagination even then:-)

    This has such a beautiful flow …. if that can be said of poems. I am not a writer of poetry but I do enjoy reading them. This had me seeing evrything that you were saying in every word.

    Just lovely ….

    Namaste,
    Isadora

      Thanks for the visit Isadora. It’s only lately that I’ve taken to writing poetry a little bit regularly. Glad you liked it:-)

    This feels like the sweet, innocent love that I knew as a very young girl. It only gets better with age!

      Lucky for you if it did. Some are not as fortunate, but the dreams remain , I guess:-)

      Thanks Jingle. My only reluctance about joining the rally at times, is because I am not able to do justice to so many wonderful bloggers here . I do so want to read as many as I can. But sometimes I’m not able to find enough time. Otherwise I just love being part of the gang:-)
