A space to cherish

   (Painting by Sunita Khedekar)

Memories etched  so artfully
 brush strokes of yester years
 juxtaposed, tears and smiles
faded yellow turning to bright, so artfully
ridges and grooves between strokes
they pass between life, memory, and ecstasy
a cherished juvenescence, days chasing butterflies
wonder that haloed everything , the joy of living
grey colors invade without knocking
spring flies high leaving umber aches
butterfly memories still fresh, bold strokes
embracing white canvass, joys of life intact
memories etched so artfully
a space to cherish

  2. That little bit of grey that breaks in helps us see the "memories etched so artfully"more vividly. Beautiful shape here.

  3. Memories etched is such a bold saying because as you make clear, they are so vivid they seem like yesterday.

  7. How nice to be remembering all the fun of growing up and it all seem like yesterday. Nice to see back Sreeja. Since you are an artist why not take a look at this web-site below. It's a gathering of other artists and it's going to be fun. I've just submitted my first posting (Toying with Acrylics)
