Written Memorial

For DVerse’s haibun Monday.


Several people gave me graduation gifts, such as special cards or generous checks. Over the weekend, I wrote some thank-you notes, put in the mail this morning. They are a memorial to kindness, and a way to pay it forward.

I like writing notes and letters, and who doesn’t appreciate receiving one? Letter-writing is a lost art, and I’d like to find it again, a memorial to times gone by, a tribute for a better future.

Handwritten missives
Flowery script cultivates
Aroma of kindness

  1. Wonderful haibun RW! Love the hand written communication. My penmanship has slipped in my older age, so mine are not beautiful – but the intention is genuine. Nice post… 🙂
