Ronovan Writes Weekly Poetry Challenge #158: Pink &Shell


Unshelled memory

Serendipitous trigger

Handing me a gift

Survivor of time travel

My inner child tickled-pink


Ron’s Challenge

  4. The tanka is clever and sweet. Yes, some of the memories that resurface at odd times are nice ones.

    Wondering why it is a grayscale photo. Perhaps because the shell was not pink?

    Thank-you, Mellow. I decided to go with B/W because of the reflection on the past in the poetry which can be on the grey scale of memory. The shell was actually in the yellow zone, but my hand holding it was pink. Thanks for asking. ❤

      Thank-you, Vasti. It’s interesting about memory that some don’t survive time travel. My daughter said the other day, “Mom, do you remember showing me how to plant flowers?” and I had no recollection. I guess because it was a special experience for her.

        Yes, I’ve experienced that. There are memories of my childhood that none of my other siblings remember and vice versa. I guess memories are imprinted and remembered if they affected us somehow.
