Haiku My Heart


A time travel scent
footsteps on crushed lavendar
to Grandma's canyon

She used to walk there
gathering fragrant moments
of time to herself

Now and whenever
I want to revisit her
lavendar transports

to
Haiku my heart completely.

  5. Fragrance is such a strong reminder of the past. Whenever I smell fresh baked bread, I am transported to my grandparents' kitchen.

  7. Beautiful♥
    Lavender is so evocative of days gone by.
    It reminds me of my dad's mother.
    That and the vinegary smell of the comforter on her bed. It was years before I learned it was made from an acetate fabric, and hence the smell. Not unpleasant, just different.
    But I digress...

  10. What lovely haikus in honor of your grandma. You did a full story in three rounds of haiku, or do we call them verses?
