Friday Haiku - Universe

Haiku Friday


Many times I see
Pictures of the galaxy
That feel familiar

Like I have been there
Old haunts, that I have been to
And will return to.

I know it is weird
But I am the universe
come to know itself.


I promised Nicole of NicoleB Photography I would publish a picture of my town. Here is our old train station - now moved to a new location near our new City Hall, which I will publish a picture of soon.

You are an old Soul. And I'm not just saying that.

I love that trainstation picture. It's nice to see a little glimpse of your world.

Reading that, hmm, I felt it was autobiographical. Not for you, for me ;-). ~Mary

The old wooden train station reminds me of a few stories of my youth, but this is your train station not mine. But, I can't help but think, looking at that train station, if our leaders had been wise enough to know to hang in there with the trains, where we might be today?

I'm positive that I was sent to the wrong planet. It was a mistake. I cannot wait to get back home....where I was meant to be this whole time.

Still trying to figure
how the hell to write Haikus
that aren't sucky.

Yours are good examples on non- sucky haikus. Wish I could get in the habit.
