Old High School Photos

and for a fleeting moment

when viewing each picture

a silent wish quickly expires

    A lovely picture Haiku Jim. I think we all make a silent but fleeting wish when pouring over old school photo's. Brings back memories. Thank you for sharing Jim. (Report) Reply

    I'm quite the opposite, I don't want the moment to be fleeting and I stare at the pictures for a long time wishing time had no expiration date. (Report) Reply

    You've really captured a lot of feeling here. Your poems make me stop and reflect. You should write more. (Report) Reply

    I don't know how you manage to say so much with so few words. You have a talent for it. (Report) Reply

    Interesting thought. I imagine some wishes were benevolent and others malevolent, still others lustful. (Report) Reply
