Nostalgia


Sometimes life just makes you feel so nostalgic that you tend to question yourself..."am I living life or am I just thinking about it?" It's wierd isn't it ?But that's whats beautiful about life, it spreads new roads in front of us and makes us miss the journey we've just covered.
Anything can trigger off nostalgia, even the very thought of certain things brings a smile on our face. We meet strangers and discover a similarity that reminds us of someone, a particular fragrance, or the roads that we have crossed as kids, a familiar warmth or just a familiar smile, a simple post or just a sparkle in someones eyes....
Nostalgia knows how to define a moment and fetch us a smile.

Yesterday I heard a song,
and thus a chord was struck,
an affectionate feeling rose within,
a feeling of a long lost bond,
I closed my eyes and felt it seep through,
it went and settled on my heart,
I bat an eyelid and a smile streached out,
nostalgic it was,
Memory of a nostalgic past.

A wise man once said that our lives are made up of memories...but then that is so limited that we could spend half an hour to maybe a couple of hours and go through every single memory we own.

Hi Sana,

"Nostalgia knows how to define a moment and fetch us a smile."

I love that line very much. How often that it does to me... a smile or a dozen smiles or maybe a thousand. :-) .. and memories come traipsing in like a lovely dance.

Interesting piece of writing.

Thanks Zayida and very true,nostalgia does make any incident worthwhile, coz it brings life back to it :)

I'm happy I could do that Pramoda :)

Yes ARN, thats very true :)Sometimes we're so into them, that they become a means of comfort when one feels lonely.

"memories come traipsing in like a lovely dance...." thats a beautiful line Ellen :)
