The Parade of Memories


I saw him after countless years

With purple shirt on

Like night skies

where stars reside just for me

With the ripped denim

Like ecstasy of springs

And the momentary gleam

With orange cap

Like sun peeks from the cloudy blanket

And glow just for me

The hairs peeking out from cap

Looks like dancing egrets

In the wilderness

Flapping their wings in sync

I saw the sneakers he wore

So white and bright

Like the fireflies has appeared from ground

And spread his wings under the sun


Those black eyes

With gold tint

Like treasure of memories

Drowning over my mind

Straight away my eyes stuck on his smile

My time stands still


The poetry begins
