"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

childhood tanka

childhood flavour is
apple pie and happiness
unspoiled strong scent of
cinnamon and brown sugar
and Heaven in mother’s smile

    • Just like you I was really loved by my parents… That is why we have such a sweet memory of childhood…
      As a friend of mine said, memories are the most dear thing we have in this life…and nothing can buy them… 🙂

      • Words are incapable to catch 100% of the feeling… in poetry and in life…
        I am not a real poet.. If I would be, I would live for poetry day and night…
