Poetry is an act of peace. – Pablo Neruda
Some memories do reside within us ...
Yes they do GS,,thank you for visiting as I always enjoy your words,,,
I like the contrast of old and new, robust and faint, the now versus the past ~ Lovely reflections ~
Thank you Grace
This poem reminds me of my grandparents' house before we sold it. So many old many memories. I only wish there was time to make new.
I'm pleased it brought back memories for you Ben, thanks for your comments and visit,,,
Smell is very evocative..there's not always a word to match..but you catch the lingering and sense of it haunting 'you' in a very effective way..Jae
Thank you so much for these words, Jae
