Moments : Reminiscent


Moments : Reminiscent
haiku friday

Ineffable joy
remaining clear in my mind
treasured memories



Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love,
the things you are, the things
you never want to lose.
~The Wonder Years~


I have done my best to turn around my mood since last week.
Right now, I'm itching to get out and about this weekend;
it can't come quick enough.

Despite the unfavorable weather we continue to have,
I have been a bit more motivated, which is baffling.
But I won't question it.....

In the keep on keepin' on post,
I talked about how Big Sur has been on my mind.
Along with photos of cliff-lined coasts, nothing can conjure
nostalgia of our trip quicker than an orange poppy.
They were a familiar sight along the lovely coast.
Surprisingly, I didn't get any photos of them while we were there.

Cody brought this one home for me the other day,
perfect timing - as usual.

Want to see a beautiful place?

  15. The way that one petal curls is so graceful and unique. It decided to not be like the rest of them, I guess. Beautiful haiku, too, and beautiful the way Cody thought of taking the flower to you. When a guy understands the language of flowers...you know you have a keeper :)
