BE PATIENT (multiple haiku)

"brothers it's Christmas old people love Christmas too hark the master's voice one and all hear me! old people are beautiful!” thus spake our preacher “I want you to know Jeeeezus loves all old people.” says our fine shepherd “if Jeeeeezus loves ‘em then we have to be patient.” shaking one finger “in the grocery store if you get goosed by a cart,” the reverend smiles “then friends by Jeeeezus if you would go to heaven turn the other cheek!” ----------------------------------------------------

Awesome multiple Haiku Daver. Oh yes patience is the virtue, that will brighten the apple's luster to the Maker's eye. Wisdom is justifiyed of her childern, and I am sure, she didn't pass you by, as attested by your age. I don't know how your fine poetry has escaped my attention. I guess we needed a formal introduction. I won't be a stranger from now on. Sincerely, Moses

It isn't for no reason that the eldery is refered to as the golden age. They may not be as svelt as they used to be, they may not always hear you well or understand you well, but if you listen to their wisdom, your life will be enriched. Very nice poem, true and a great message. Indeed we should be patient with the elderly. Thanks for sharing and for your nice comments on my poem today. Love and blessings, caroline.

Hi Daver, I love this poem! I love old folks, the stories they tell.We can learn so much from them because they have lived long through experience! Oh and have I heard some dusies!!! Hey, now, I'm starting to think those store need a drivers license, I mean it's not easy manuvering around those crowed isles. LOL! Thanks for a wonderful series of Haiku's Daver!! Thanks too for your wonderful comment! Happy Holidays! Love Light Patty

Oh my I love this delightful, and upbeat poem!! Sometimes, people who gripe and complain with impatience about the dawdling older person in line in front of them.....forget that one day they will be old...each one of us needs patience and matter how young or how old!! A wonderful poem, Daver!!! Happy happy Holiday dear friend!!!!~ Love, Carrie

Delightful verse, Daver! We should all be patient with people who have disabilities and the elderly, but sometimes we get that "I'm in a hurry" feeling. I'll make you a promise that if I ever do get "goosed" by one of their shopping carts, I will gladly offer the "other cheek." Witty and wonderful in your own unique style, my friend. Shared "Animal Court" with my friend Tom yesterday and he loved it!! Merry Christmas and holiday blessings. Love, Carolyn
