Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

Nostalgia’s Power…


Nostalgia’s power

Emotions ignited upon remembering

Returning to a time or place

In a state of wakeful dreaming

Sights and sounds are reborn

Smells enhance the memories

In the living color that engulfs

Our personal histories

Fondness, sorrow, peace, regret

Sometimes it’s difficult to linger

In the longing that we know

While revisiting dusty mirrors

At times tears are born of pain

At others they are born of joy

There is recognition that much has changed

Just below all the accepted noise

Whispers of what once was

Shouts of what may have been if

Bittersweet representations

In the form of curse or gift…
