Today’s Gift

Senryu poem about a bracelet gift
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2014

Today at work, I was given a special gift from a charming little boy about 6 years old.
It is a rubber band bracelet made in multiple colors.  He told me he makes them and sells them for $1.00 each,
but “Today!” he said “This one is free for you!”  How sweet!  I shall treasure it always!

Not Tellin’

Tanka poem about a humorous experience
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2014

What a reply!  I never expected that! “I’m not tellin’ ” I said!  LOL!
I met this little guy today while I was cashiering at work.
He was a bundle of energy and full of questions!
His mom must sure have her hands full with him and his brother who are twins!
But, he sure made my day and gave us all a good laugh with his reply to my question!
I just had to write this poem to hold onto the memory of him and this encounter!
