I linger around memories which leave a scent effervescent,
Feasting on mind are fragrances sweet as champak flower,
How long life sustains in glory of past?
That which is gone is a skeleton without shadow,
Unlocking with keys lost, a mere prisoner of memories.
Poetry form :- Gogyohka and Quadrille ( I’ve combined the Gogyohka form of Japanese poetry ( which requires a poem to contain five or six lines with unrestricted syllable count )and Quadrille poetry form ( a creation of dVerse poets pub , which requires the word limit to be restricted to 44 words, including the prompt word.)). Hope you enjoy my take.
