Memories

            Memories             

Memories rest in tender frames
Picked over, chosen, kept
As real are the scorching flames
Those dowsed by tears wept

A day, a week, a month, a year
Roll by without respite
Gathered, attached, more appear
Of hurtful and delight

Memories rest in splendour frames
Each one a work of art
Torn from joy, laughter, pains
For body, soul and heart.

    It appears you have been framed! It's not your fault. I hope your happy memories exceed the sad ones 10 to one. Human beings possess a negativity bias which means we more easily remember the sad or bad things that happen. We have to work at concentrating and remembering all the good things that happen to us. I enjoyed this piece it makes me think. Well done Richard.

    Yes you're right Richard the bad memories leave scars, maybe because they cut deeper. Thanks for the extended comment, very interesting reading

    I read this yesterday but was at a loss for a comment, Mr Seal...There is an underlying sorrow there, but I do believe that you have wonderful memories to fill those lovely frames of yours...Very original....

    very nice one. Memories, time, they all become major themes for our poetry as we get older. I enjoyed this Thanks for putting up a new one!

    The older we get the more we aquire and time seems more important as we have less of it. You know me Petal, I've a slow hand
