Today’s the last day of the 3 Day 3 Quote challenge. Once again, thank you to LIVE LOVE LAUGH for sending this my way.
If you’ve been following, you know I switched things up and decided to post quotes spoken by my characters. I invite you to share your character’s favorite quote in the comments if you are so inclined.
Talented poet Balroop Singh submitted her characters’ favorite quote in the form of a poem. Rather than stuff it into the comments, I post it here for your enjoyment. Two characters, a mother and child, speak through the poem: Tide of Time.
TIDE OF TIME
Life was filled with innocent joys
Childhood pranks, fascinating toys
Lots of friends, dreams so dear
Aspirations and goals to cheer
Searching lost childhood in you
Soaring into the unknown blue
Seeking fulfillment in those hues
Which life had painted anew
Hand in hand we walked on
Brushing aside thistle and thorn
Sharing vision of future bright
Weathering storms, accomplishing heights.
Your éclat illuminated my pride
Those precious moments now deride
Tide came…carried them along
Bare sand, where do I belong?
Quickly, life passed by
Snatching away cheer and joy
Shattered shards of wonderful years
Lie scattered, arousing fears
Confused, crestfallen, I stare at life
Endeavoring to reconcile
Picking up threads, entangled by time
Living with memories, living with mime.
