Golden Years

Golden Years

Etched into the surface of a pocket watch once held by my grandfather, and then his son, a cabin under the shade of a tall tree sits on the bank of a stream. Worn smooth in places, and sitting now in my hand, the gold case speaks of simpler times, its voice carrying across the years, conveying the value of a hard day’s work.

time-treasured heirloom
hands within to mark the time
held within each day

Using voice and watch, this haibun is my response to a challenge from Colleen Chesebro: Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge No. 50 #Haiku #Tanka #Haibun: VOICE & WATCH.

      • A good choice indeed. Interestingly, my brothers and I chose very different things to keep from my parents, and there wasn’t any conflict. I suspect my daughters will be much the same, although they do both covet one of my great aunt’s quilts (but I have 3 of them, 1 each from my grandmother, mother, and aunt, so there’s a consolation prize).
