Nostalgic Encounter
by: iolanda scripca

Today I bumped into my Childhood
and it did not recognize me.
I said: "Hi! Do you live close by?"

It answered mutely with frightened eyes...

Reality was pulling it away from me

I had Childhood in my palms today

but once again it cried snowflakes

of tears of Christmas long time gone...

Just wondering...what was your best memory of your childhood Christmas...

    I love that poem, Iolanda. I don't know that I could pinpoint one terrific Xmas memory. I have posted several poems in the past month that review my special memories!

    Dear Andie, I am so sorry I stopped being active on my beloved PS but fate took me to some very dark events surrounding me. I try to come back slowly but surely :) Thank you for the lovely comment.
