A Memory Dances

A memory dances,
Distant, elusive
Teasing as it passes
In and out of thought.
Seconds seem like hours,
Days, a minute of time,
A forgotten, yet familiar face,
Is lost in a single blink of an eye.
Limbs in rhythm,
Softly and gently gliding
Across a relaxing mind.
A spin as it turns,
Caressing the temple
Of consciousness,
Instilling a memory so long ago,
A touch so overwhelming.
Feeling beyond the pain
Fleeting yet lingering,
This memory dances,
Filled with longing and love.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
