Green memories come alive!






Stumbling through thicket
Falling, learning to move on
Green memories live
~
Fantasy enriched
Lush copse tickle naked feet
Woolgathering kids








The picture above shows my Grandmother's backyard to which a lot of childhood memories are attached. A place where i stumbled, fell and learned the early lessons of life in hindsight. It was a little fairyland for me, being where i created my own world, seeded my dreams which live till date!

Today happens to be the sixth death anniversary of my Grandma. This post hence, is very dear and nostalgic to me!

This post is written for Haiku Heights. The prompt for this week is 'GREEN'.

  2. How touching Pranita! Such moments in time get etched for life in our memory banks. These are the moments from where we seek solace in times of sadness. Nice write!
