A Loom of Memories

I sleep tucked in my time wrap,
Floating between the dreamy skies
and the sea of reality.
The sands watch over the horizons
as I imprint them with sweet memories.
Why does the wind on my forehead,
sometimes feel like the soft caress
of my mother’s hand?
I rush through the mornings
when a kid’s cycle-
pulls at the strings of my bag,
and a scar on my elbow makes me smile.
I fascinate as how I outgrew
my kindergarten teacher-
Her petite frame was so overbearing,
not so long ago.
So many friends stopped, played along
and moved on.
I walked on only to realize
how invaluable was their touch,
and how I grew through the heartbreaks and joys.
I keep my memories with reverence.
For they are in the intricate enigmatic design
of the universe, of which I pass by, enriched.
Memories of the days when everything
new was so fascinating,
Yet, I was all knowing.
Not so long ago,
As the days pile on now
the lesser I know.
The complexities baffle me,
The beauty stupefies me-
Between sleep and wakefulness,
dreams and reality,
In this time wrap I move
With the treasure of my memories…

"The autumn leaves are a riot of color. They remind us of the good, colorful things, and their crunch beneath our shoes also bids adieu to all bad things that have long gone,"

It is an awesome poem. Very descriptive, with an apt title. I think you actually have a 'way with words'. That proves you're one of the few talented poets I've ever read! Keep posting!

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than I

This poem has that magic to it, that ability to relate to you deep inside. I know a lot of people have told you that is amazing and I am one more. Thank you for this beauty.

Stolen. :/ Not cool man, after all these years of rewriting and reposting my poetry you just had to steal one. Don't try to go through with others stuff and try to rewrite it e.e

Your poems are enchanting, what I love best is the strength of the description that takes you to a different place.
