this is a pretty big swipe - so much abstract -
You may find it enjoyable to grab one memory and give that and the emotion - let us see and feel a particular memory - the mind covering and uncovering the leaf fall - very colorful.

Thanks for your comments York and Jane.

When you get to be as old as I am, memories come in a jumble and that is the reason for the fleeting first stanza.  Like it says, a lifetime of living.  The seasons indicate the effect the memories played during this long lifetime.  I hope this explains, if not, maybe you'll have to live as long as I have to see  the wanderings of my mind while it rambles through the abyss of memories.

Lillies,

I'm up there! :( :emoticon:

What throws me off is the period in the first stanza.

LilliesCarol, hey girl I'm up there with you too. Sometimes our memories move faster then our pens can put it on paper. But memories are a treasured commodity. So keep writing those memories are great!

Controversy, isn't it great!!

I guess we all take from an author what hits us between the eyeballs in the idea realm.

Lillies I liked it and the poem I just posted was written with the same sort of point but of course in a different context. SO I am with you on the whole reflection thing.

After several months of being unable to post due to some sort of glitch in my internet browser, a wonderful MASTER OF THE COMPUTER led me to a whole new world on the internet.  So much for that!  The poem you see here was my first experiment with the new system.  However,I think I posted it a long time ago,but it will be new to many of you, so have at it.  Crits are always helpful.

 

MEMORIES


Joy, sorrow, delight, regret,
Fleeting, teasing, skipping, jumping one to another
A lifetime of living, striving, surviving---
Memories, forever and ever.

Memories forged in a vise of summer heat,
Covered with autumn leaves that drift down,
Snowflakes hid them all--
Till spring rains of atonement cleansed.
