How many moments
Forgotten on cards set aside
For the next trip
And the moments that need to be kept
Separated from then and now.
Time stamps returning thoughts
Of days gone by,
Moments forgotten and not recalled
When revisited by chance.
Sleeping dog unaware of the watcher,
Rugs cluttered with toys in playful moments
And spring shadows sculpt beauty
As she waits for acknowledgement
Of a day that slipped by or so thought
Yet resting here now among momentos of yesterday,
I smile quietly in deepest thought
As I see the changes.
We all turn more tired and grey
Time putting its stamp on us all
Setting minutes aside for the discovery
Of youth found once more.
Playing with the new computer and inserting an old camera card, memories come to life once more…..sleeping dog and playful dog waiting to pounce…..and pouncing dog with cat who is no longer on earth, but a sweet memory….the fat squishy cat who was also fond of hanging with her dog friends investigating the old wood pile for chipmunks….ah, sweet memories indeed.
