The last time , I wrote a letter .
Discernible acquaintances it was !
Driving down the path of memory ,
reminiscing the mirth of knock at doors ,
the white envelopes carrying the letters of our acquaintances.
Enticing it was !!
The letters were calligraphed to best shape the emotions of sender and the recipient.
I remember perfectly the time I wrote letters .
Five – Six years ago ,
before we had any social media ,
any emoticons to celebrate ,
we had caricatures- those special characters to stay in touch ,
the cards are alive in my memory .
It was for her , a friend; a soulful paradise. Indeed special !!
Small life ,
Window of happiness
The poem of life ,
Shadows for life ,
That keep you alive
It happened by a fateful chance ,
Stayed by Choice,
You keep me glowing,
You keep me going ……..
The whites , blues and greens made me ecstatic , on which to pen down . The letters could read hearts , words were
the metaphors of my physical presence .
Indelible memories of childhood preserved very subtly and conspicuously carried .
Letters cannot have any replacement . It had a curiosity attached with themselves . The last time I wrote a letter is
still fresh in my mind , and is very rejuvenating .
A MELODY, A WISH!!
Someday I meet you , I hug you , days I miss you , hours I think of you. Someday we meet , someday we part , instil a
hope to meet yet again always and forever!
