Childhood Memories-Haiku

Childhood Memories-Haiku

Childhood is an age when life is full of fun and games, the best part of life-


muddy crisscross lines

fading tiny feet imprints

childhood games hopscotch


shoes cast-off in haste

trail of sweetness tease senses

hot chocolate treat


squishy sound delights

trying to hold slipping sand

going to the beach
