My earnest reminiscences

Layers of life unfolds
The reactive moments of glory
Realized, loved and forgotten
Realized, loved and forgotten
The reactive moments of glory
Layers of life unfolds
As prompted in: 3WW CXXX (Earnest, Layer, Reactive)
Also linked to: Week Seven of The NaisaiKu Challenge

    You are really putting your foot down, and your creative energy is boiling over.

    "layers of life unfolds"

    You used an old cliche most refreshingly!

    Now, tell me the secret of how you lock your pages on blogs!

  5. Tan read you, another beautiful naisaiku.. we keep on seeing a different layer everyday.. and want more... keep writing this well, thanks for sharing..

    @ Amias

    Thanks for this comment. I'm trying to take out whatever I have in me. The idea is to entertain you all here. If that is done, I'm the happiest person living ...

    Will give you the code. Just copy and paste .. thats it.

  7. ..was thinking of dabbling into it next week, on second thoughts reading ur nsk- might as well do it now_

    'aami jene shoone beesh korechi paan'_

    'consciously,with awakened senses i've partaken of the death potion'_ [approximate translation]

    tagore r .n._

    no he's not talking of suicide here_he could well have used the word_which he clearly avoids doing _it is the 'beesh'-the poison of life that he is talking of _ the hemlock that he willingly & knowingly consumes- out of choice & free will .. the poisons that beset life ..

    [echoes from indian poetry ]

    of course 'reminiscences'/with apologies for a cmnt with a complete brake failure..

  8. I like the way your words echo back upon the reader for emphasis.

    Nicely done.

    @ Zoya

    Welcome to my blog.
    "Aami jene shoone beesh korechi paan" was a good thought to clutch with this poem. How on earth did you do that?? And then, I'm so obliged to have been connected to Tagore someway here... Thanks a lot!!
