Turn the page gently
Peruse the words of my heart

Merril studies history, writes poetry, and dances with her cats—sometimes at the same time. Read more of her work at Yesterday and Today: Merril’s Historical Musings.
I liked the tender feelings and the nostalgia that came through this haiku; a letter? a diary?
This haiku is part of my LEAF series.
