grandpa jogs

grandpa jogs
he can’t seem to outrun 
his age

he really tries
he’s good at finding
new wrinkles

    With the smile that this puts on my face I would have thought it a senryu? Which ever way, what a great read, what a great write.

    Scott, I think you are probably right, about the Senryu.

    Love these kind that are based on ideas instead of the way they are always saying to do haiku.

    None of us can outrun the ravages of time. An enjoyable read. I invite you to view "One hand on my britches" in my postings.
