An Excavation

The sun-soaked meandering valley of my lucent life Drained by the cadence of elated stream swirling Around the cluster of glimmering gold nuggets Carved out of life’s valued golden moments. With the sailing sediments of euphoria dislodged The sparkling pieces roll on the turbulent time In the torrent of the cloud-burst falling sky Flow to the flood plain of obscurity far. In search of transported treasure trove eroded Buried beneath the strata of stagnant time past I wade through the marsh of submerged existence Excavating the layers of memory in tranquil twilight. In the light of the setting sun fading so fast Each time the surged tide of turmoil ebbs out I exhume the gems of memory from sands of time Retrieve the gilded instants I had once lived to adore. ___________ June 30, 2021 Title Chosen : An Excavation Contest : This Or That, Vol. 4 Sponsor : Edward Ibeh

We seldom think of positive aspects of past. If we thought of all good things that has happened to us life would be so joyous. Thought provoking write. All the best for contest
