Rononvan's Weekly Haiku Challenge

Evergreen…

On this valentine’s day and with Ronovan’s haiku prompt ‘eye & fade,‘ my thoughts drift to my dad.

He would have called me by his special name for me just to say happy valentine and to ask after his grandchildren. I miss him sorely.

Though I haven’t set eyes on you

in three long, painful years,

my hearts memories of you never fade.

Tints of Poignant Flavour….

Flavourful life

Flavours come in coloured tints,
Likewise emotions leave imprints,

They leave taste of euphoric dopamine,
Especially then, when you were mine,

They leave a taste of not so bright,
When everything is just not right,

A dash of joy, of peace, of faith, of hope and patience too!
A pinch of pain, of aches, of sorrow, of fear and trouble too!

With a tint of colour, each lives in our minds,
Always willing to leave something behind,

Of love that died or went away; it leaves a flavour mound,
A poignant taste of things all gone and never to be found!

You left our lives with quite a bang!
You left us behind with a lot of pangs!
