Untraced

The unguarded memories
The moments that no one knows about
Because no evidence exists
Except for the picture painted when eyelids close
The recollection when a whiff of perfume transcends the air for a brief second
The warmth of a hand shyly reaching for another
The heart at ease, safely at shore
There’s not a single photograph
But in your mind
It’s as if it all happened yesterday.

    I really hold tight to those thoughts of memories, sadly all too few.

    Hi Erica,
    just letting you know the day is finally here! My book has been published today, and I’ve just posted links to it. The poems born in it from our inter-blog interactions are:
    Gargoyles;
    Words On A Bridge;
    Words Unmet.

    Thank you for the encouragement and inspiration.

    So amazingly true – for the good and the bad. I believe it is truly profound how long a memory lasts. And how vivid the pictures remain. As always, I hope all is good across the sea. I really like this one.
