Smorgasbord Poetry – Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge -#Haibun – I Wander down Memory Lane by Sally Cronin

Time does fly when you are having fun, and I cannot believe it is Wednesday already and time to give syllables their marching orders for Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge 129

This week we have to use synonyms for Colleen’s prompt words..’Hobby and Play‘… I have used ‘Pastime and Frolic’ in my Haibun.

I Wander Down Memory Lane #Haibun

I wander down my memory lanes, searching for a distraction. It is a pleasant pastime to dredge up events and people from distant years. To remember the childish laughter, to frolic again in summer sun and winter snow. I strive to recapture that love of life and sense of fun. And there it is. I am ready to face the real world again.

Life is a circle
Seasons come and seasons go
back to whence we came

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here. Find out more at

  3. Beautiful Haibun, Sally! This is one of the reasons I have always loved writing and photography and with the advent of companies like Mixbook and Shutterfly we can make photo books and write captions, quotes, and poetry to really capture a moment in time, so that we can relive these precious moments later. I have made a bunch of them already. 😉 ❤
