A Reflection on my Recollections

My recollections - whether they be good or bad - do not make me glad. Best times cannot be remade; if I’m lucky, , , bad ones fade. Written Oct. 27, 2012 For Michael J. Falotico's Reflection Poetry Contest

    I should hope you will remember the good ones...those are the ones that will make you not worry so much about the bad ones. Best wishes and one love. Joy Wells

    ‡ I Come To Your Door, Sweet Beautiful Andrea. Suddenly Once More, Finding The Skies Racing By As The Oceans Turn. Becoming Mute And Wishing To Just Sit In Silence For A Bit, To Touch And Feel This Rare Beauty Inside. I Love The Soulful Voice In These Words Holding A Torches Light. Which I Also Find, To Be Yourself. In Love With Your Poetry And Your Beauty. My Love, Always, Rachel *

    An excellent Tanka. Wish you a win in the Contest.I thank you for your kind and uplifting comment on my poem The Prisoner, Andrea. I find it difficult to convey a meaningful thought in 31 syllables of 5 lines. However, I have attempted to do just that. -Mohammad

    The sun will come out tomorrow. And yesterday will fade. The warmth of love we find today let's us know we've got it made. In the shade. :) Hello.

    We surely can't relive the past and it is hard to forget the bad but eventually we do..Thanks for stopping by my work..Your comments are always so uplifting..Sara

    Excellent write Andrea, we do tend to want to hang on to the good memories, and pray that the bad ones dissipate from our memory, well said, it's a great entry for the reflection contest, big hugs vie
