A precious moment
A sweet, treasured memory
A part of my life

The shimmering sun
The wide grins on our faces
The cloudless, blue sky

An old photo
An irreplaceable thought
Never forgotten

A short poem that so perfectly encapsulates the very core of a photo! BTW: Great job on selecting an accompanying image... it really helped me, as a supah visual person, to match your writing to a fitting photograph.

Well in my opionion haikus are all about taking something that seems uninportant or simple (like a photograph) and then using imagery and vocabulary that make it seem magical and extraordinary. The hard part about haikus is you have to sqeeze a lot of meaning into just a couple lines. When I see a comment like "short yet beautifully written" I know that I succeeded in writting a haikus because that is all that these peoms are about :D.
