Tides Of Memory (tanka)

They return in tides

Every drop of memory

Moments once thought past

In the rivers of one’s life

From eternal sea of time

Beautiful! Why do the painful tides seem to roll in stronger than the pleasant ones? Tell me the next time you're heading to the beach, I'll pack a bag :-)

The tides continue to ebb and flow, whispering their songs of what once was...
