What memories are made of

What memories are made of

Electrons and molecules,
locations and meetings,
cells and membranes,
plans and chance encounters.

Significant events
and insignificant occasions.
Tiny sparks of electricity.
Sleepless nights
and countless dreams.

A small release of chemicals,
passing from cell to cell.
Recollections of the past
and expectations for the future.

A life lived,
and dreams
of a life yet to live.

Let me know what you think!
