A Memory Of June

Spread the love

Late June, given the faint glimpse of sun
cabbages, deep green along the edge
and a sigh for a many labored breath.

Some days I wish I could go back in time,
not to change anything, but to feel
the same things twice.

Sweet with a tinge of spice, cherry tomatoes
and rising steadily oh favoring wind,
I remember because it was when my heart
had finally beat its wings.

    Yes, yes, wouldn’t it be good to feel that way again? Or… maybe new feelings will be just as grand, if we can attend to them.

    1. Sanaa says:

      That’s a good way of looking at it πŸ˜€ Feelings are like waves, though we can’t resist them from coming but we can choose which ones to surf ❀️

    That shish kebab is a perfect symbol of a tasty situation to go back to. Love it, Sanaa. Most of us can identify with wishing we could feel some things twice. A good wish that can’t come true.

    I am with you, Sanaa. Sometimes I wish I could go back in time and experience the same things twice as well – especially the good things. (Smiles) I think that is one good thing about poetry. If you write about something, you can revisit the experience again and again! I enjoyed your thoughtful poem, Sanaa.

    1. Sanaa says:

      I agree, we can indeed re-experience things by writing poetry!❀️ Thank you so much, Mary πŸ˜€ so glad you enjoyed it ❀️

      Thank you so much, Sarah πŸ˜€ so glad you liked it ❀️

  28. panchali says:

    My Goodness that was amazing, Sanaa! Your writing is so beautiful!! Each of these is the universe’s way of humbling us, of helping us grow and allowing us to re-frame the past from a place of gratitude for our present.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Aww!❀️ Thank you so much, Panchali πŸ˜€ so glad you liked it!❀️
