Haiku # 4 - Dial of Memories

Fourth day of this year’s National Poetry Writing Month. Today’s prompt was a challenge you to write a charm – a simple rhyming poem, in the style of a recipe-slash-nursery rhyme. It could be a charm against warts, or against traffic tickets. It could be a charm to bring love, or to bring free pizzas from your local radio station. Here’s a little springtime example of my own concoction, inspired by what I hope turns out just to be hay-fever or a free prose.

I am participating in A to Z Challenge 2014 where we write 26 posts in a month each day on one word from A to Z barring Sunday's. Today's word is "D".

I chose Haiku today -
This is something I felt when I found my father’s wrist watch in a wardrobe many years after he passed away.
