COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 193, #POET’SCHOICE #HAIGA #IARTG #ASMSG #WritingCommunity @ColleenChesebro

I had fun with COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 193, #POET’SCHOICE. I decided to pick one of the photographs that I have used as a cover picture on Facebook and write about it. I ended up combining a Haiku/Senyru and one of these pictures with the end product a Haiga. There were several poems to choose from and pictures. I have a nature Haiga I almost went with and will be sharing later, but this combination (even though the picture quality isn’t good) tugged at my heart. Maybe because that little boy is turning 26 years old this month.

Years ago after a snowstorm closed down our main road we were able to sled on it. We’ve never been able to do that again, so this holds extra fond memories of that snow day.

An innocent time Buried deep in memories Still creating joy. (1)

  1. What a wonderful memory, Denise, and the poem is perfect for the picture.
    One of my fondest Christmas memories is of a snowstorm when hubby and I got snowed in. Even though we couldn’t be with family (we did a family Christmas a week later), it was purely magical.

    1. Thanks, Mae. There is something magical about getting snowed in with loved ones. I’m picturing a cozy Christmas for you:) Nice!

  2. This is such a lovely memory to share with us, Denise. I’ve never experienced a cold Christmas. The temperatures here on Christmas day normally exceed 100 degrees Fahrenheit. We huddle around the air-con instead of a warm fire. I’ve always wanted to experience a White Christmas. 😊

    1. Thanks, Soooz. I’ve had hot Christmases before and was looking forward to a white one too. We’ve gotten lucky and got a couple over the years:) Maybe someday you will:) xo

  3. How beautiful, Denise! You’ve captured the joy and exhilaration of the moment in just a few words. I love it! ♥
