Written for:  Carpe Diem #1673 Troiku Month (2) my native town
“Today I have a haiku for you to create your Troiku with written by Santoka Taneda:

my native town
far, far away–
hurgeoning trees.

my native town
sometimes hard to remember
so many changes

far, far, away–
living in other cities
yearn for what was

burgeoning trees
ripe fruit of childhood days
still blossoming

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Beautifully written! I’m always yearning for the way things were!


  2. It’s been ages since I’ve been back to the place where I grew up. I wonder sometimes what it’s like now.

    This has a nice progression, and I love what you did with your third haiku.
