JOURNEY
 
 New York at Night, Vivienne Gucwa

Down memory lane
They walk hand in hand
May be a gray oblivion
Hides the pathways
They journeyed together
Still the cobbled moments
They trod on eons ago
Are illuminated
By love’s light
Both of them look like
The silhouettes of trees
Deeply rooted on life’s course

  15. Sumana,

    I love the looking back in this poem. For some reason it reminds me of my early years living in Belfast....I always reflect back to that city:)
    Happy new Year,
