MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 411: OLD DARLING REVISITED

MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 411: OLD DARLING REVISITED

 

red booth on white snow

reminiscent bygone days

town no longer same

 

sentimental years

fed coins to icon kiosk

fun and frustration

 

boot stuck in deep snow

messages interrupted

run out of copper

 

spotted box in tour

thrill to meet an old darling

walk in library

 

Note:

 This serial haiku is inspired by Helene Vaillant’s photo prompt posted on 11th December 2018.  I take this opportunity to wish Helene Vaillant and all readers a Merry Christmas and New Year, participating in festive mood.

    A wonderful response to the prompt Keng Huat. We don’t see those booths anymore, our younger generation has no idea what we did in there. I like your haiku and the way you weave in a bit of humour gives it a festive mood. Thank you for sharing your poem.

      The red telephone booth triggers a sentimental nostalgic past; yearning to relive what we have missed. Time is going too fast, with the advent of 5G, without consideration of lagged emotional and psychological factors.
