Haiku on Growing Old

I can't seem to stop writing poetry or reading poetry. I think it is safe to say I love poetry and I love sharing great poetry with others.


Haiku on Growing Old

A half buried rock

that holds child's watercolor

through every season

Ponderosa Pine

cone lies on animal path

to remain all year

Sometimes they gather

the hummingbird and squirrel

moments of magic

my damn beard grows long

along with the crabgrass outside

our brown and grey time
