    And each click is a wave of the candle flame...and so a new memory is screened. Sensational imagery, Terry. (Report) Reply

    ripples within ripples, your images are harmonic in my mind, inspire creativity waves, to return to your haiku

    Memories (Haiku)

    upon mental screen
    images from dusted times
    re-presenting life

    Mihaela Pirjol

    reflective introspective an inquiring mind must be past present interactive perceptive fix such minds focus defined contemporary reality :) the circle continues

    Memories [ re-presenting life ] a line, initially I thought will go unnoticed when I wrote my haiku; and here it is inspiring more creativity :) (Report) Reply
