Just think, if our brains worked the same, we could stand on our head, when we forgot something, and do an action replay! :)

Sam Liu said...

Very clever, a witty and profound write!

Pauline said...

white sand bytes - ingenious!

chiccoreal said...

Dear TW: How sand does byte when it is put in a glass cage that is turned to mark out our days and then we turn to dust. Imaginative Mag! Most Excellent Haiku!

Elizabeth said...

Love it,and Jinksy's comment which made me laugh,

May the grains of memory hold strong! Love your take on this prompt, technology was not one I had thought of.

Thank you for stopping by to check on Jack and his gremlins. Really appreciate the input.

spacedlaw said...

But in passing, the grains are caressed into other shapes, so we do not get bored with the repeats.

Annie said...

grains of sand caught in
a loop of repeating, repeating, repeating, repeat . . .

Grains of memory repeating - that's a fabulous metaphor.

Oh how it repeats. Like circles in a spiral. Glorious!

Great haiku. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Stafford Ray said...

Did I detect geekspeak? Bytes and memory... of course if it is digital it can be turned around, cut and pasted and even repeated!

David said...

I like the Haiku. Thanks for stopping by also.

JeffScape said...

No repeat! Don't turn it over... noooo!

Ah, well... history must be kept, somehow. ;)

Oh, yes. This is current...and everlasting. Very fine.

'Sand bytes' 'grains of memory' that's great - very funny.

Janice said...

lovely haiku

steviewren said...

Sand bytes are better than sand bites. I'd prefer the memory of one over the other for sure.

RA said...

Oooh! :)

gospelwriter said...

This is clever - and so true, memory grains forever running through as we upend the hourglass time after time. And you did it with so few words!

Jennifer said...

Love this TW - still thinking about the "white sand bytes".

Julie Jordan Scott said...

such a beautiful magpie and I had to make mine so dense... (should've haiku'ed too!)

Lovely.

Read my (late and dense) Magpie here.
