Memories – Sweet and Strong

of better days

waft in by the dozen

as I look once more

at my old school;

The places where I cried

The places where I laughed

And the places where I hid

when I was a kid…..

Silent witnesses of

a complete generation,

the trees, the sand,

and the volleyball court

talk to me in a language

I do not understand –

Perhaps they tell me

of a secret truth,

hidden amidst the chaos

of a city life,

waiting to be discovered,

when I am alone –

in a village plain….

( Dedicated to all my school friends – esp late Shri Jesudasan whose six foot frame could send a service ball 30 feet up in the air……. and remembering Shri Loganathan of Lateri who taught me Volleyball)
