Haiku for Old Age


Old tartan blanket,
once used for picnics and lust,
keeps his stiff knees warm.

Author: Sarah Potter Writes

Sarah is a British eccentric who writes offbeat fiction, haiku and tanka poetry. When stuck for words, she sketches or paints instead. She's into nature conservation, sustainability, gardening, dogs, natural health, and reading. Her sociability is something that happens in short bursts with long breathing spaces in between.

    1. Thanks, Lindy 🙂

      I’ve found that the careful choice of words required to write a haiku has helped me apply greater discipline to my prose writing. It’s also a therapeutic breather from working on a novel. One minute I’m scribing with great intensity upon my ever-expanding tome, then I take a little break and write a miniature in three lines.
