A clichèd pining...
Beautiful poem, I really liked the haiku.
So sweet and something all of us parents can relate. The graduation from the back to the front seat happened without my noticing in the mad rush of just "getting on with it" - who knows what that definition of "getting on with it" is - all I know is that it was a wonderful time that feels like it went by too quickly but at that time could not go by quickly enough.
loved the poem and abs loved the haiku. few words but so profound....you are so talented Reena with your stunning photography to go with such evocative and meaningful prose.
Thanks for the mention. Beautiful poem!
Grown men 🤔
Only a loving mother could pen such verse.
Loved it Reena. Sweet nostalgia beautifully expressed.❤️❤️
Beautiful poem and haiku,Reena! As we grow older, the past becomes more present! A larger fraction of our life experiences are in the past as we move past the half-century mark and there is a tendency to wander back. This is good if your experience has been, for the most part, good. I wonder what nostalgia looks like for those whose early childhood or adulthood experience wasn't that great? As long as we keep moving forward while enjoying past memories, life will continue to be beautiful. No Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda regrets...
