Nostalgic

Post by bleachybones » August 12th, 2017, 6:54 am

Splashes through my Hands,
solid as a rock, but not
raises up loud as oceans
but it's gone like the Sound it
speaks of
it's air
fair to breathe in until breathe stops.

This is very good - the way you described a fleeting wisp of memory is fantastic! Very, very well done.

And there are many paths to tread
Through shadows to the edge of night,
Until the stars are all alight...

Congrats on the Spotlight for this small gem. How wonderfully you describe the manner in which we experience nostalgia. It is so true, it can be a heavy rock, a boulder we can not raise high enough to get it off our shoulders. It can be a wispy and evasive as the very air. But as sad as it can be, it shows us we are still alive and experiencing. Nostalgia dances away as we give up our mortal life for a lighter one. Lovely

Congratulations on the spotlight! I really enjoyed the way this read and it so aptly describes the feeling of nostalgia, which I tend to find hard to describe without actually saying the word nostalgic. Very well done. Thank you for sharing this.
