TJ’s Household Haiku – Full & Only

TJ is back with another set of great prompts, photographic and wordy!Viacar of Wakefield with illustrations by Hugh Thomson


Full & Only

Firstly TJ, I totally agree with you! The art of letter writing has waned, and it is such a shame! I try to encourage my children to write a letter or two once in a while, to their grandparents and uncle in Finland!

A couple of weeks ago, an envelope arrived for Lil Princess and she was ecstatic to receive a letter from her best friend who has moved to a different area of the country! She quickly wrote a reply back and is now awaiting a reply!

So the first Haiku is for her!

Full of the joy that
Only a letter can bring
A smile on her lips

The second inspired by the beautiful photo and letter opener.

Just a little slit
In a bulging envelope
True friendship is found

    These are lovely Sis. I love getting a ‘proper’ letter and it is wonderful that ‘Lil Princess shares your love of letter writing too.
    When I was young, like most kids, we had a penpal that we wrote to from differrent countries and it was always a pleasure hearing from them.
    I have always loved the art of calligraphy too, and appreciate a beautiful hand of writing. I do have a go at it sometimes, but unfortunately, have not got the talent, it is a very fine art. 🙂
