A Haiku - Remembrance

Why do we remember?

Sit alone and all your memories are there with you.

Recollections we once collected....

I see you clearly.

You once were young and handsome.

You dwell here unchanged.

  • A Haiku - Sounds

    Sight, smell, taste, touch, are all important gifts we share; but sounds take life everywhere. Hearing those sounds makes up so much of life, a precious gift for sure. Guard it well, you can't imagine being without it.

It's wonderful that you writers also read and take your precious time to comment. It is said that in Heaven we will have perfect recall. Thanks for giving me something nice to recall.

I really envy how you can say so much with so few words. The meaning is more pure. I don't see how you do it.

I like this haiku as I feel the same person inside as I always have but then I look in the mirror and see someone a lot older.

Up and awesome!
