In my autumn years
I realise that within
were spring and summer
Welcome to the first TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge for 2016! The prompt for this week is “Container”. We have all sorts of containers in the house so what does your real or metaphorical container hold? Please do share links to your posts in the comments below and if you can include a snap of your container for other to enjoy, all the better.
On New Year’s Day in Perth there is an antique fair and I picked up these two Japanese dolls from the 1950’s for a mere $2 each. When I go home I was cleaning them up and suddenly one pulled apart and this was the result!
Similar to Russian Matryoshka nesting dolls these little dolls have movable heads and are hand painted in bright colours. My sister who was visiting at the time played with the smallest doll only to find it too contained a minute baby little bigger than a grain of rice with a sweet little face painted on it.
I hope your New year contains many wonderful surprises and happy memories! Best wishes to all you haikuists out there!
