I am participating in the #BarAThonEdition3 which involves alternate days of blogging from July 2nd, 2018 to July 15th, 2018, based on a theme and a prompt for the day.
Her little hands
Said— Give me Five!
They met again.
On Reunion Day,
the gang unites.
Bring such delight.
For ol’ times sake,
The eyes gone moist
Raising their eyes,
They nod and smile
The wrinkled hands say—
“Give me Five!”

Aww, this one made me smile, Esha. I hope that years down the lane I get to share such moments with my old friends, how good would that be! Lovely poem. 🙂
You have time travelled with emotions and in such beautiful word play. Loved the capture Esha- made me nostalgic when me and my friends would use this slang so often in school and feel so darned cool 😉
Aww! This is nostalgia galore. Loved the emotions and decades you have covered in so few a words, Esha!
School reunions are very emotional. I remember my own school reunion when I had mixed feelings for the people I loved to meet again while others whom I never wanted to see again. Some cat fights fade away with maturity but some leave a mark.
It is always a new experience to meet someone from the past especially someone you have grown up with. Nice take and well written poem
Here is my 5th #barathon post.
Thanks a lot, Jai. Glad you say so.
That was a really nice heart warming thought Esha. Meeting school friends after years is always wonderful
It is, Sunita. I had the same thoughts about my school reunion three years back but sadly, due to a surgery, couldn’t make it. But one of my classmates had a similar moment. as described in the poem.
This is such a wonderful poem Esha.. co incidentally I have written about a reunion too
Oh, thanks, Akshata. Really? You too? Will hope over and check out your post now. 🙂
it was just wonderful in recalling old memories … lovely post
Thanks much, Smitha. Basking in the bliss of memories is always lovely, isn’t it?
Beautiful memories esha.
Such sweet, heartwarming, nostalgic creation, Esha. Nothing seems to have changed , except for physical appearances, when old friends meet!
Thanks so very much, Anagha. Yes, it is like that when old friends meet, isn’t it?
Made me nostalgic
Aww! Thanks, Bhagyashree!
School memories are so special!
Thanks, Anita. 🙂
Such a heartwarming poem that made me smile. It is a coincidence that my flash fiction for today is also based in school.
Thank you, Sonia. Would love to check out yours too.
