Picture Perfect Haiku


         the old wooden bridge

    spans the fetid stagnant pool

       where my dreams decay

I walked carefully across the old wooden bridge. Across the fetid stagnant pool and considered decaying dreams. This haiku took me on a journey, very nice~Delice

We appear to be on the same wavelength regarding this one, David! I think that age and experience have something to do with it:) Thank you for a welcome visit. // paul
Date: 5/27/2015 11:04:00 AM
Speaks of youth. Or it speaks of old age, mood, and many another human woe. For me this makes for a great haiku. Love, dave

In my case it speaks more of old age!! The years are fast going by, and so are many dreams that that never became reality. All the best. // paul
Date: 5/27/2015 10:14:00 AM
In my estimation, Paul, this is truly a magnificent haiku espressing the deep emotions that many of us feel from time to time when our dreams are unrealized. I love it so it's a "7" from me! Ever, Pandita.

Thank you Sneha! Yes, as a rule haiku do not have a name, but I do name a string of haiku that refer to one common topic. // paul
