A Haiku - Remembrance

Why do we remember?

Sit alone and all your memories are there with you.
Sit alone and all your memories are there with you. | Source

Recollections we once collected....



I see you clearly.

You once were young and handsome.

You dwell here unchanged.

  • A Haiku: It's November
    4

    November: the month when "The war to end all wars" ended; yet wars go on. November: the month when America's elections end, and governments go on.

  • A Haiku - Cherry Buds
    2

    By the ending days of winter all of nature yearns for spring.

  • A Haiku - Leadership
    20

    What defines a true leader? It isn't just charisma and sensing their power. It isn't just making us afraid so we are mobilized. It's being true, honest, fair, up front, and out front. This Haiku examines leadership.

It's wonderful that you writers also read and take your precious time to comment. It is said that in Heaven we will have perfect recall. Thanks for giving me something nice to recall.

I really envy how you can say so much with so few words. The meaning is more pure. I don't see how you do it.

I like this haiku as I feel the same person inside as I always have but then I look in the mirror and see someone a lot older.

Up and awesome!
