#86 of 365 – 3 Haiku about home

3 Haiku about home

 

hands weathered and dry

cardboard sign falling apart

“anything will help”

 

 

open guitar case

he plays folk rock songs from ‘68

fourth infantry patch

 

 

the fire feels like home

open hands soak up the warmth

safe, under the bridge

    Evocative to the point of magic — three powerful tributes in one to the human spirit’s will to survive. Basho and the Boys would love these three! I do!!

      You have made my day! Thank you so much for the kind words…I’m honored to be in the same sentence as Basho…and honored that you love them. Thank you! May your sleep be warm and comfortable with gentle entry into morning.
