Remembrance

“The glamour of childish days is upon me,
My manhood is cast down in the flood of remembrance,
I weep like a child for the past.”

– D. H. Lawrence (1885 – 1930), British writer

 

REMEMBRANCE
(Remembering is the past-tense of forgetting.
Forgetting in the future-tense of remembering.)

images of years gone by –
snap shots in series;
a slide show
in this theater called Life.

fleeting moments fly
like
floating butterfly;

gone too soon, yet, remain
in Time,
in thought,

in remembrance.

(between
yesterday and today
are memories.

between
today and tomorrow
are dreams.)

– existence
is between
memories and dreams.
