A haiku

autumn to autumn
the soles of my shoes
still clean

Great haiku, Pris. Now you have the epitaph on your memorial stone (not for another 100 years, of course):

'She Always Kept the Soles of her Shoes Clean'

I love haiku! I feel very self conscious when I write free-form poetry, like I can't say anything that hasn't been said better, or less tritely. But Haiku imposes a structure, and I can force my thoughts to follow those syllables and be happy with the outcome.

Think about joining Haiku Hut. It's a great board for all sorts of short forms!
Thanks for commenting.
