Old letters




old lettters
scented with lavender lace,
story of undying love


~0~0~0


mother's words
lingered on frail paper,
our bold inspiration


~0~0~0


family secrets
hovered on frayed threads
in time:  sands in the wind



and Haiku Heights:   Revelation

  2. Grace, I could not easily choose a favorite, but if I were pressed it would be the first one. You used Vicki's art to 'craft' beautiful haiku!

  6. I love all three, grace
    The first, sweetly archaic
    The second, nurturing
    The third, obscurity
    Great job!

  7. Secrets sometimes best left buried too, all sure flow like the sand, each one just as grand.

  10. nice....reading old letters is cool...it kinda takes you back to a time...or enlightens you on one you have not been to....being in their handwriting as well there is another connection...a touch of who they were...

  11. I used to love the way they used to put a dab of perfume on letters. They still did it as late as when I was a kid in the 60's.
    All of these are lovely Grace.

  20. These are beautifully crafted haiku, Grace. The last is my favourite probably because I can relate to it personally.

  21. Grace,

    Three delightful Haiku, which have a great individual reverence with the timeworn theme.
