Tell your brother he did an amazing job, Katherine. I love the photograph and the nostalgia that underlies and inundates the poem. Well done. You should be proud.

Obviously, you knew a good poem when you saw this one. I hope he will see my review.
*****
This poignant poem will do what poetry is supposed to do, stir emotions. The reader is invited to identify with the poet. The reader may even remember thongs or events they'd forgotten. This is a perfect theme. A+ work

That was wonderful and creative, and I loved the photos!

I just wonder why your brother wouldn't join the site and write with his own name. He obviously has an ability to write, and everyone is welcome to this writing community!

Thank you for posting this and sharing your story with us.

    Waking up to all these reviews was so exciting! Feedback is a gift and today was like Christmas! Thanks for your valued words.
    I can't commit to joining the site, as I already have a more than full schedule of my own interests. I just wanted to dabble in my sister's passion for a few days whilst we're together to get a feel for how she spends her time. G.

I love looking through old photos. I must have a million of them now that my mother is gone and I have all of hers. They can bring back memories of things we've forgotten, and for a moment, we can relive that time. I enjoyed this very much.

Very charming. It has the correct 5-7-5 syllable count. It is a delight to view those old photographs. They bring back such memories of childhood friends. I don't know why, but rhyme seems to be a requirement for poems in the short poems contests these days, and this has it. It reminds me old of family pictures I have. judi

Kate,

Nice! Please tell your brother I appreciated this piece - is that a family image? Either way, it reminds me so much of my own long-gone childhood days. What fun!!! Thank you - tell him we said, MORE!

I can't count the number of times I have looked at old photos and had wonderful memories of the time shared with the people in them, most of whom I have seen in decades. This senryu describes those moments to a tee. Great job, Brother.

Your brother has written an excellent senryu. It has the flavor of the old days when boys could go with their shirts off and pose for a picture in a joyful pose. Their friendship is obvious and their camaraderie shows. How wonderful to have such joy at an early age,
Thanks for bringing back the old days when we could romp and play the day away.
Take good care of each other,
Jesse

    I am wishing all the best for your ailing parents. I know this is a hard time for both of you. The good old days were a wonderful diversion for a while.

For a first poem, rather Haiku or Senryu (thanks for the distinction between the two), your brother has written a thoughtful poem. Itt expresses an appreciation for memories of the past.
