Retrospection

The air smells of nostalgia this evening.

Memories taint my subconscious.

Recollections pump on my mind in my

quietude as i spend some time in

retrospect.

 

My imagination runs leaving wagging

fingers in its wake.

Scattered pieces, unfulfilled spaces

take my vacillated mind hostage as

questions hover like jellyfish.

 

History and anticipations take me on

a roller coaster ride to discover the

miles my vacant compass trekked on

memory street using my life journey’s

log book.

Wasted time, past mistakes and heart

break come crashing as my assumed life

flashes before my eyes

 

Vivid thoughts illuminate my mind

creating a bespectacled vision.

Anecdotes start playing a retrospective

film.

An accumulation of fleeting moments

full of pictures in sepia.

Author: AfroetryC

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love poetry...art, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.
