Unforgettable moments

Look what's unforgettable at writers island

Unforgettable Moments
By Marja Blom

Unlocking the door to the remains of yesterday
I enter a Colosseum where a king rules
by the law of Love Learning and Laughter
hardwired and at the essence
of many unforgettable moments

I remember times surrounded by
a rainbow of Love, coloured by angels
warming my heart and sometimes
taking me up to a paradise
where butterflies soar in Ecstasy

I witnessed a hunger to discover
the mysteries of live, fighting to unravel them
squeezing secrets into words, followed by the delight
of the fruits of approval of the master
gratifying every taste bud

I chuckled at the priceless times of laughter
when sparkling wit danced in comfort
with senseless seriousness
letting the soul fly with free spirited wings
lifted by the wind of happiness


  1. I like the winged references. I kind of flew away with your poem. Wonderful!

    help me rwrite Greek tragedies

  2. Poetry is like painting with words! Knap dat je kunt dichten in een vreemde taal. Bedankt voor je bezoekje aan het nu zonnige en zomerse Nederland. Ik zou wel eens naar Terschelling willen.

  3. A wonderful opening line -
    Unlocking the door to the remains of yesterday-

    And then the rainbow, all those colours and beautiful words. Thanks, Marja

  4. Great to be able to look back with a smile of contentment.

  5. This is almost a flat rainbow. Are you getting enough rain yet for your farmers?

  6. 'lifted by the wind of happiness'

  7. Kia ora Marja,
    I just returned from my first adventure into the mountains with Charlie and my new hip. Tara was asking me how I felt when I got there and sat within the view. I was sort of stunned and not able to put into words how my soul felt. So reading your words does it for me. "My soul flew free with Spirited Wings...". Kia kaha!

  8. Thanks Gautami Nice to see you again
