sad turn


road to our old house
the sad turn from love
to memories

(Remake of an earlier haiku, and hopefully an improvement)

--

she remains silent,
as do I —
outside, the wind

Warren...the pain of these memories is very vivid in these haiku. I suppose some painful memories are sharper than the joyful ones.

Hi Adelaide - I am going to have to think on that - I guess the older I get the more I forget the bad memories and dwell on the good. But I do tend to go back to the bad memories for haiku material.

Thanks!

P.S. - Adelaide - I removed the haiku at the end of this one - didn't feel it was ripe yet.

Well, these two are ripe with the wisdom that comes from experience

Hi Bill - Thankfully these experiences are from the past. Well, once in awhile the second one may be true, but not often.

Thanks

Warren
