Haiku Friday - Clearing the attic

Haiku Friday

Yesterday we were
Emptying out the attic -
Sweet memories there.

Children's first paintings,
Colourful daubs and splodges -
Jackson Pollocks, all.

Faded pressed flowers,
Mementoes of special times,
Bring joy and laughter.

Our love letters too
From courting days to marriage
Each other's best friend.

Photographs of friends
From our young and silly days -
Where are they all now?

School reports cause groans,
Old journals make us guffaw,
Baby toys bring smiles.

Mouse droppings abound,
Holes chewed in all our old clothes
Make throwing out quick.

We've kept many things
We couldn't bear to part with -
They're back in the loft!

  2. Wonderful haiku!
    I have difficulty too
    letting go of 'stuph' ;--)

    Hugs and blessings,
