Toy box

box of wooden toys

Years pass too quickly
Tiny blocks and wooden tops
Childhood mementos
Paint fades, memories ne’er will
Kept safe in a mother’s heart

Submitted to Weekly Writing Challenge: Traditional tanka contain five lines instead of haiku’s three, and 31 syllables instead of 17. The structure is that of a haiku followed by two additional lines of seven syllables each: 5-7-5-7-7.

Submitted to Haiku Friday for LouCeeL

  1. Felt every word. *sigh*



  2. I love the melody of this, particularly
    ‘Tiny blocks and wooden tops’
