Childhood Memories in Senryu




hoarded rocks
tumbled in a can
sparkling gems



Sky King
seeps through pin and quartz
crystal radio



paper rolls of songs
respite from chopsticks and scales
player piano

Dearest Tumblewords!

I loved all three of these--

The rocks--
The radio stories--
and the player piano--

Very evocative and sweet--
Thank you!

These little gems just opened up whole vistas in my mind's eye!

I thank you for your kind comment. I love the haiku about the rocks especially but I like them all.

Loved your take on this prompt Sue and the photo, so very special. I wanted a rock tumbler 'big time' but never got one. I did however get a Pillsbury bake set, remember those!!!! No wonder I ended up being a cookbook author, eh?

Big hugs, G

I enjoyed these very much. That last one made me smile. My grandmother had a player piano, and she played the real deal. I wonder if those paper rolls inspired her!

Such a lovely photo. I always wanted rock tumbler but never had one.

Quartz crystal radios and paper rolls - very concrete and evocative. I must have had a deprived childhood over here on the other side of the pond as i don't recall 'rock tumblers'!

this gave me the chills for some odd reason... possibly the remembrance... it is beautiful and especially so the photo... happiness flowing over, possibly..

Oh my god -- Sky King (and Penny too). What a way to be transported through time! Thank you so very, very much.

Interesting poem. Made me work a bit - which is all to the good.
