“vinyl” memory

memories rush
for no rhyme, reason
like rain water gushing
in crannies and dips
old box like vinyl player
along with old 45 rpm
and LP vinyl records
gathering dust
a precious treasure
trove somehow got salvaged
despite bloody carnage
of country’s partition
melodious voice of singer late
Mukesh* et al in old Raj Kapoor**
movies would reverberate
superseding summer heat
bright yet soothing colored glass
adorned doors, arched windows
toning down heat of militant sun
as we gorged syrupy shaved ices
one trigger and
plethora of memories
make a beeline ~ that’s
how it always is !
* old Bollywood playback singer and ** old Bollywood actor
