Memories beyond mineral water bottles.

Some memories have taste of tear
that by filters we may clear
but can never be concealed
in bottles sterile and sealed

They mushroom the seas and melt into rain
quenching the thirst of brooks in the brain..

Hey... too good!
Besides, now science itself has validated as we grow older, our brain filters teh memories and keeps teh happier ones... so lots of happy stuff to remember as we grow older... :-P

I agree, I always felt that living on mineral water bottles was 'te(a)r'rible.

Memories are funny. Data that remain with priority but never understand whether it's negative or positive.

Happiness and satisfaction in life depends a lot on how much we use these filters...One thing MIP..Don't you think we all conceal those tears sealed in our mind..though I am not sure about the sterility part.Nice post..keep writing.

Old Monk said...

Hey MIP!
Its time for something new,
Time to activate yourself,
To prepare something delicious
With your magical usage of words,
To trickle our brains and
Satisfy our tastes....
