Fragrant Reminiscence

written by: JayM


But a whisper time travelled,
A sharp intake of
receding timelines,
Of fireflies in flight,
On a new moons night -
Faded comfort an easement.

A stolen glance, a fleeting glimpse of
embracing shadows,
A walk in the rain
of uninterrupted distances,
Tracing intertwined steps taken, age dissolved.

Smudged ink on parchment
rolled on and spun,
Into a reminiscence,
Bearing notes of joy.
A cloak of
crystallised brilliance
enveloping a hushed conversation of interlaced fingers.

The cry of a lark
resounds through the timeless,
A delight
eased out from the hidden recesses of the mind.

What does a memory bring?
A cornucopia of marvel!



JayM is a poet and writer from Mumbai, India, who strives to make sense of the increasingly multiple, paradoxical and ambiguous world around him through his verse and prose. He writes poetry – free verse and haiku, apart from satire based on his travels. He takes life with a pinch of salt, and advocates that doing so makes it highly palatable.
