Haiku 40

rain clouds come to play,
wind pushes far memories -
old and rusted swing

    I really liked the images you penned here. Thanks for posting your work and thanks for your comments on my "shhh" poem..

    I really like the image of the "rusted swing". It gives the haiku some extra "punch". Peace & Blessings

    I've always liked that word... poignant. It sounds nice rolling off the tongue :)

    When a Haiku makes you feel as if you are in the picture.. it is great.

    Can't remain in the past... but it's important to look back on it. Thanks for stopping by, Charmaine!

    This is a wonderful and intriguing write my friend! I wonder what the effect would be if you changed the last line to, "old and rusting swing" just a creative idea, not wanting to change your poem any Timothy, just looking at what it would be like! I really enjoyed reading this enlightening poem this afternoon! What an outstanding piece, Great Work!!

    Hey Russell... never apologize for saying what you really feel... I take criticism well especially when it's constructive. I see what you mean about "rusting" over "rusted"... it's a constant process of time passing on. Thanks for the suggestion!
