Day 21- OctPoWriMo 2017 (Prompt Nothing Remains the Same---an abecedarian)

As fifty seasons touch grey feathers
Beckons the heart, into the lost treasures
Craving to capture some lost moments
Dancing to the tune, of changing seasons.
Every day brings a new change
Forgetting too many things within our range
Gearing to remember the forgotten past
How time takes a leap and moves fast.
In my own world, I build my castle
Joining forces with my mind and soul, I jostle
Keeping track of all those missing memories
Lovingly turning, pages of old albums and sepia-shaded diaries.
Moving with restless fingers, touching pieces here and there
Noting down some sweet reminders, to remember
Opening the pages of fostered affections
Pilferage the fragrance of youthful passions.
Quietly gazes, a memory of lost love within those soft pages
Reminding that nothing remains the same and everything changes
Shadows of experiences glimpse through the fold of wrinkles
Trust me, it is not easy to sustain the eroding jungles
Ushering a transformation within
Very adamant, to handle the changing skin
We belong to the nostalgic clan
X-rayed memories do come in hand
Yearning for a little bit of sunshine in strife
Zooming with zest into the sunset of life
