Like flashes of fluorescent phosphenes in my eyes
they dance and sway and shimmer and fly…
the flickering memories….

Swirling and whirling across my skin
arousing the whirlpool of emotions
from the fathomless depths of my being….
the watery memories….

Of flowering springs and relentless rain
of ecstatic raptures and stinging pain
of cavernous sorrows and buoyant laughter
bringing tears and smiles together….
the bitter sweet memories…
