Last year’s perch broken
Victim of its age and height
Barn owl soars over

Karma

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 149 Excite/Karma

Bought on an impulse
To excite man’s autumn night
This Karma(nn Ghia)

Bright red, sleek, and so shiny
It makes up for what’s not there

See Me

tilted

I am older now since we’ve seen each other
But the passion is still inside.
I walk a little slower now,
My hands tremble as I stride.

The years passed so quickly,
Since those years long ago.
Sweet music then filled my heart and soul
And life was filled with goals.

I followed lanes of promised glory
That turned hollow and seemed cursed.
Any success I found left me cold
Thin wrappers that failed to warm.

Choices made so long ago
Obscure what could have been.
I’d rather you remember me
By how happy we were then.

-Clarence Holm
