A Sugar Plum Haiku



 



a small memory
shriveled by time and distance
a sweet sugar plum

* * * 

may your holiday
be filled with wonderful things
turned sweet memories


Merry Christmas!  Happy Holidays!  Best wishes for the New Year!

    1. Maybe, it would have been too sweet?.. Perhaps, a little bitterness won't hurt :-)
      Thank you, Brian, Merry Christmas.

  7. Memories are indeed sugar plums, sometimes unmagnified by distance, but sweet when savored for what they are. Such simplicity in the verse, but broad in conception.

  9. Gorgeous image and verse. I must say -- I've never had sugar plum. I just looked them up. They DO sound delicious. Damn, what I have missed out on. Thanks again.
