The imaginary musings of my mind,
experience past & present lingers long,
dusted off,re-opened,viewed from time to time,
retrospective perspective changes all;
Maturity's long-sightedness squints aghast,
then savours the mellowness of memory;
A tear,a smile washes nostalgia's face;
Today will be yesterday,gathering dust,
then filed,microfiched,all too soon forgotten
'til an event unlocks the museum again.

    I really like the imagery, and the ponderings in this poem. Leaves me with a forlorn feeling of the passage of time, but also has hope entwined with lines like, ''til an event unlocks the museum again.' Excellent. Chris.

    The muse ought to be active to unlock the mind

    Always admired the stream of consciousness writing style James Joyce employed in Portrait of the Artist. The mind is a mystery to me. As you say, the museum gets unlocked from time to time and sometimes we don't even know why. Thought -provoking poem, Brian. Best wishes, Carolyn

    The museum of the mind, full of dusty forgotten artefacts, I really like that imagery.
