Haikus For The Worst Of Us

I thought you loved me

The answer from the mirror…

“Try again later”

Tonight we shall dance

Do not hold me too closely

I’ve still got sea legs

It never gets old

although I have lost my youth

Let’s fade together

She was so lovely

‘was’ is more appropriate

so much is changing

Do I look tired?

Or are your eyes just cloudy

perhaps both are true

Come in and sit down

The chairs are sturdy and clean

You, clearly, are not

It’s problematic

We don’t have to sort it now

have another drink

The sun rises soon

Are you ready for the day?

When will you wake up?

Birds will fly again

Trees will continue to grow

Now are you learning?

I will know you soon

and when I do say hello

what have you to lose?
