“We grow up with dreams in our eyes and songs on our lips and we discover that life is not what we thought it would be. And then, we discover nostalgia.”
--- Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Nostalgia is a feeling of an experience from the past. It is not just memories. It can be a longing for an experience from our childhood or a person from the past. Nostalgia also helps us to connect with our past and understand our present. Nostalgia gives comfort and happiness.
I would like you to write down a haiku/senryu about the memories of specific people or person from your life. The person may be your friend, grandparents or else a close relative.
Here's one for your inspiration:
wrapped in an old betel leaf --
for stomach bite
