Post Card - Haiku

A knock on my door,
Postman wearing brown, smiling,
Gave me the postcard.

A message from home,
Of love and togetherness,
Tears of happiness.

Thanks to the postman,
For bringing me aroma,
Of my scented soil.

Emails can't replace,
Nor any technology,
Postcard reading joy.

I received a knock on my door. Opening it, I was greeted by the postman, who was there to deliver a postcard. The postcard was from my home, and it instantly brought back all the sweet memories of my childhood, the scent of the soil when it rained, the fragrance of home, everything.

The message was from my family members, and it conveyed love for me. I was overwhelmed by the affection they had. I cried in joy.

Whatever be the technological advancement in the modern society, emails and internet can never replace the joy that we get from receiving hand - written letters and postcards. They add the personal touch which so lacks nowadays.

This Haiku is written for Sensational Haiku Wednesday, and the Prompt is Postcard.
