Haiku My Heart
April 13, 2012
Haiku My Heart is a fine weekly gathering of creative souls that share Haiku, photographs, artwork and stories. It is the creation of my friend Rebecca. You can visit her blog and see more examples and share your thoughts, or find out how to participate yourself at recuerda mi corazon.
This sun split in three
The sky is shared by the clouds
There is a sunrise and sunset every day. Some days, we see this spectacular event as it happens. Many times, we photograph these events. I never get tired of looking at old photos of sunrises and sunsets, or even pictures of the sky!
I try to remember where I was, what I was doing, when I took the photo. I place myself back and recall the circumstances. Maybe I was traveling. Might have been at a ceremony, camping out. And many times it was just the view from my kitchen window.
This one posted today was from April of 2010 near Memphis, TN. I was picking up my friend Larry at his place, and we traveled East to Atlanta together to attend a reunion of the military unit we served with in Vietnam. Larry and I, along with a few others that I served with in 1969, will reunite again this year in September in Colorado Springs, CO for another reunion.
The idea of recalling memories on Haiku My Heart Fridays has become the norm. My children, Grandchildren, a job I held or a trip I was on will be relived. Today’s post is no exception. And yesterday, I passed an anniversary date. April 12th is the day I was drafted and reported to the induction station to join the United States Army. That was in 1968, 44 years ago.
My oh my, how quickly the time goes by. Glad I have these photos to remind me that the sun rose that day, as it does today, and brightened my life.
Peace to all
