Poem: Alouettes – “Time Whispers” #wordhighjuly #amwriting #poetry




Transported back in, 

Time we see motion.

Life changing as minutes pass.

Cannot return there.

For we are now here.

Not in memory, or past.


Gunita capture, 

Threads which sewn fast were,

Unravelled in the mind of, 

Our recollections.

Our past devotions.

Needles sewing, they swerve.


Stitching anew life, 

Pricking with new strife.

New memories become past.

Recalling our joy.

Thinking of child’s toys.

Children no longer, grew fast.


Moonlight and stars beam

Under ink sky winds stream.

The leaves of the forest so green.

As we run to wild seas.

Our voices carry dreams.

Full orb, in glory, moonbeam.


Daylight bringing new, 

Light and laughter true.

Throwing pennies in the fountain.

Wishes and kisses.

True love blisses.

Young then, we climbed high mountains.


Adventures of us, 

In today’s world fuss, 

We do what we do because,

We have plans, desires.

Travel with heart fire.

Perceive present, will be a was.


Building and shining,

Memories divine.

For one day will have but whispers.

In our minds thrive, 

Memory keeps alive.

Though the world yells; we whisper.

    Lovely series of Alouettes, Mandi. As always, you manage to walk us with your thoughts through your words. Gunita is well captured here as well. 😀

      Thank you Maria. I’m happy it made sense for you. Sometimes I write stuff and I very much doubt it has order or makes sense 🙂

        It does makes a lot of sense, Mandi. 🙂
        And I don’t think you’ve written one that doesn’t… I feel that at times, too. That I may have written stuff that may not make sense to other people but make sense to me. Hehe, yet I published them anyway. 😀

    I like your take on memory. You make memory into a truly versatile entity with many possibilities that form the past and inform the present. This is a great study of “gunita”!
