Friday Haiku – Reminiscence

Haiku Friday

Little people days

Thought those busy times would last.

Now, precious mem’ries



Fresh air, play outside, all day

Better than many toys


Queen of all she sees

An imaginary realm

Do you see her throne?


Do you remember?

I let you choose what to wear.

Mis-matched clothes are fun.


Wondered “who” you’d be

Precious babe, I waited long

To see you, meet you



Mischievous sisters

Looking for fun from the start:

Best buds forever

    Hi, Laura,
    I need to get busy scanning more of those fun old photos. I just need to be careful not to put too many of them up at once! They do bring back great memories!

  22. Sarah says:

    Wow! 21 comments. Your blog sure is popular Mama!
    I loved the poems and pictures.

  23. Laura says:

    Just think how fortunate (blessed) we were to have a big yard to play in, fresh air and all of that that’s so rare for children to have now.
    Many children grow up living in the city, an apartment building surrounded by concrete and busy roads; perhaps a park nearby to visit but so little exposure to nature.
