nostalgic moment ~ tanka

nostalgic moment
in sepia photograph
window on the past
gone, but never forgotten
always held close to the heart

This tanka is my response to Colleen’s #TankaTuesday Weekly
Poetry Challenge No. 259: #Tastetherainbow
, in which
we are to use the syllabic form of our choice with a color of our choice.

  2. I loved the depth imbedded in this tanka of yours Ken, that I read today. So much said, so much tenderness and loving melancholy in the piece. The richness of memory. Beautiful. It was a joy to read.
