      This is beautiful, such vivid imagery. Reminds me of the little trunk of memories, I used to have. Each one of the contents, a secret treasure!

      Hello Genna. I am guilty of keeping everything that connects me to the people I love. I have old letters from my mother that I cherish, and when I'm gone I hope they will be kept. I have a poem written by my sister Bea that I wouldn't take a million dollars for. Thank you dear friend...

      Just lovely Haiku, Ruby. We can never let those letters go. And that's the way it should be. :-)

      Hello Shy, Mike calls me a romantic, and truly I am. I keep letters, cards etc. and look at them when I'm feeling melancholy. Thank you for the poetic comment. Hugs

      Ruby, Ruby, my gem of a friend

      Where oh where do I begin

      With the love-letters in the sand

      That get washed out to sea

      Written by the lonely

      To a love that could never be

      With a secret plea

      Blessings my dear friend

      Hi Mike. Yes spring has arrived. I'd forgotten how much fun it is to put syllables together in a haiku. I'm happy you enjoyed. Thank you...

      Sabitha. I really do not know what you wrote. I googled it and was still unsuccessful, Perhaps you will return and explain the meaning? If you are new on HP? Welcome!

      Continuing my catch-up, I see we've gone from Chuck Berry to Pat Boone. Another trip back in time to easier days - maybe. Thanks, Ruby.

      Manatita, sounds like you have the best of two worlds. It's good that you and your EX are friendly, especially when a child is involved. Take care and stay safe in all your travels....

      Hello ThreeKeys. Every once in a while I read old letters and cards, then carefully store away for another time, go ahead and look at yours! Thanks again for coming back to share..

      Yes, Ruby.

      Its ambiguous, isn,t it? Especially so, as mom is in heaven. LOL. God continue to bless her soul. Its the boy's mom and I was once married, yes. He is 36 years old. We get on fine, we three.

      Gina, I have written to you. My prayers are with you. Stay well.

      Hello Gwenneth. I think anytime you write poetry in haiku fashion, you're hooked. It's fun to count syllables to form an image. I'll be watching for yours. Thank you for the follow. Happy to follow you...

      Dear Manatita, I'm glad that you like to share your love in poetic forms. We need more people like you in our world. It must be nice to spend time in England, Jamaica and Queens. I didn't know your mother lived in Maryland, and you have a son, that's great!!!

      Manatita, how much longer will you be in NY? I think there is something wrong with the connection on HP. When you comment on my pieces, you come up as a "guest user."

      If I knew you were going to be there I would have planned to come up to meet you.

      Thanks for letting me connect here, Ruby. (chuckle)

      You know me, my Sweet,

      Felt like teasing. In NY. Busy two days. Saw my son and mom in Maryland. Great time together. Back in Jamaica, Queens. Just sharing. Much Love,

      A charming Pat Boone song and excellent Haiku's.

      Juicily I read." -Manatita

      Hello Bonnie. Happy to meet you. All your aunt has to do is type in HubPages.com on the page that takes her to the internet. ( Google or Internet Explorer ) then type in Ruby Fuller, that will take her to my writing. So glad you enjoyed this. Thank you so much..

      Love Haiku it reminds me of my Aunt who love it. She would love this. She isn't on here Can I screen grab and just send her the image? She is low tech.

      You are so creative.

      Your heart is huge.

      Thank you for warm feeling in heart and reminder of beauty in world and how much my aunt means to me.

      Also reminder to me to get my head out of my world and connect wit her!
