Memories of Childhood


Like a rainbow of seven colours, splendour with glossy vibes

Like a box of sweets , one savoured it with delight

Childhood memories lingered in my mind

Comfort lap of mother,  listening fairy tales in twilight

Overwhelmed with the charisma of childish innocence, blurred in materialistic life

Played hide and seek, Fights with brother , unveiling secrets, hovering in  my mind

Carefree soul dancing in heaven’s light

Series of comic memories, pile of sweet applause, rejoice my mind

Stubborn, aggressive attitude, endless wishes

Irrestible emotions outburst in my  mind

Like the Pearl’s on the shore, treasure Island to Memories lane

Camouflaged in the heaven’s light


I’m delighted to share with you this poem as it was written for contest and I’m so happy bcz it was selected for the contest.Yippy! Now my two poems are going to be published😊.

Thanks for the love and support😘

    Why can’t this happen again? Why can’t we forgot all our miseries when we lie on our mothers’ laps? What went wrong all of a sudden? What changed??

      I agree. We are changed with the time. In life race we forget to live for a moment, to cherish the Memories.
