Obscure Remembrances

Have you ever inhaled a memory?
Planted in the past
Shadowed trails
With elusive tales
Just beyond your grasp

Have you ever chased this memory?
Seeded in the past
A kite drifting away
Its string teasing
Just beyond your grasp

Have you ever caught a memory?
A once elusive task
Its phantom tail
Once envisioned
Now held within your grasp

Have you ever held a memory?
Embedded long ago
Seeded and fertilized
Tended with love
Knowing you’ll never let it go

~~Debra Squyres~~

    Hmmm? Is my style of comment rubbing off on you? :) It was awsome bty. You certainly set the bar a little higher. Not that this kind of thing is a competition. :) I'm just always so glad to have my friends visit and comment and hope that my poetry isn't so sad as to be a bummer. I enjoyed being inspired by this write of yours. I am taken places with my words I don't go to on my own. My heart is full with your wonderful warm wishes. Thanks! :)

    lol...thought it was time and your words inspired me to write that :) I enjoy friends visiting my poems too. I visit a lot more than visit me, but I enjoy reading, so no big deal. Sometimes my words take me places out of the norm too. Let it flow !! Blessings my friend.

    Breath in deep, the sheltered sea. Who's mist holds mistic memories. The stars are falling one by one into it's waves cast from the sun. The shadowed essence just out of sight. Is all that's left after the night. Hi Debra, so glad to read another of yours. Grab that inspiration where you can. It does seem to come in the middle of the night. Remember? :)

    Lovely discourse on memories. Of course, I choke on some of them sometimes...:-) Like the kite drifting, string teasing...gets more like that every day with aging. Enjoyed, John

    Debra, many memories I have inhaled, and exhaled for my own good... sometimes remembering certain memories can mean something ,, it might explain an phenomenal we can't see... or maybe just not letting go... good poem..pd
