One Single Impression: Fading Memories


Fading Memories

some memories fade
barely recall Sat night baths
with my little sis

some thoughts can recall
show me yours I'll show you mine
saith first grade girl friend

Strnage how the brain (and the hormones?) select what we remember or not.

Marvellous memories of youth. Recollection becomes less with age, unfortunately.

That was very sweet. A shame how memories vanish.

Very nice pic, Jim =)

Thank you so much for your advice. I'll let the doctor report the food poisoning outbreak to the Health Authority.

The memories of those unusual and new times always seem the sharpest. Baths with sister-- probably too common. I enjoy your wit that comes through so strongly in your poetry.

it is strange what our memories pick out of the rush of life, to remember, isn't it!

Thanks, Jim, and for our vicarious cruise!

Addie looks adorable in her little blue tub, Jim. Maybe Addie can wash out your first grade girl friend's mouth out with soap? hahaha!
