Summer Wind


Summer has come and gone,
And the fragrance of these soft memories,
Hang heavy in the air.
Leaving traces of a life I once had,
Lingering on in the touch of your breath,
Fleeting, always fleeting, never to be caught,
These memories I have tried so hard to hang on to.

Memories, forgotten or destroyed.

  1. The funny (not to be laughed at though) thing about memories is that the more you try to hold them, the more elusive they get..and the more you try to get rid of them, the more they refuse to go away!
    Aahh… the little rebels!!!

    Nicely written, DP..

    1. Very well said Kavita, I don’t think I could say it myself better. Try hard to forget certain memories and people, and those will be the ones which will keep coming back to haunt you. Try so hard to remember certain memories, but they’ll slowly become hazier as time passes by. *sigh* I wish it was easier to forget, and easier to remember.

      Your statement “Aahh… the little rebels!!!” was absolutely adorable! πŸ˜€ I could imagine these tiny little rebellious memories running around with pitchforks trying to do damage to us people, but all they can manage to do is irritate us πŸ˜›

        1. Aahh.. so you got the imagination/visualization bug too huh? Yea.. me too babes! So, I’ll definitely NOT tag you as insane! πŸ™‚
          I don’t know if it’s good or bad.. but I got the bug alright! πŸ™‚
          Sometimes I actually TELL people (my very close friends) to watch their words(not for profanity, but for nothing and everything) – -Why? Cuz I will end up visualizing each and every thing they say.. phheeww… and it gets real crazy at times… hehehe

          Enough said about me…
          You have a great weekend, girlie.. (love and hugs) πŸ™‚

          1. Yes! I am so glad to know that I am not alone when it comes to having this bug! I must mention though, the bug is definitely a good bug! I’m sure much of our creativity springs due to the bug (no matter how insane it seems to get at times), and without creativity writing wouldn’t be so easy (not that it is easy).

            Yay! It feels great to meet fellow imaginative bug buddies πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

            You have a great weekend too!

            Love and hugs! πŸ™‚

  2. Your words makes me yearn for our summer….I am a summer baby…and can’t wait….memories about summer I have forgotten about….awesome write as always my friend…hope you seek up the last before the winter:) Love xxx

    1. Great to know you’re a summer baby Amanda! Where I live now, summers are way too hot to enjoy (thus I cannot call myself a summer baby), but often I remember the summers of my childhood, and how wonderful they used to be. Those nice warm friendly summers from so long ago.

      I hope you also seek up to the last before the winter!

      Love and hugs!!
