#108 or 365 – 3 Haiku about Birthdays

3 Haiku about Birthdays

it’s her birthday; she

smiles, then soft eyes look away

she misses her mom



eighteenth birthday; I

search for a bar; find a man

who hurts me instead


turning fifty; my

son’s card; “Do you know how old

you are in dog years?”

    Three good,solid haiku — sadness, pain, hilarity — pretty much the full range of human experience. For artistry alone, the first gets my vote. The second is ineffably painful, maybe TOO painful for haiku. The third is just sooo funny! How could anyone not like it!
    I like them all…you just keep getting better and better at haiku. You’re beginning to scare me! *hehehe* (hugs) — Ron —
