Haiku – Fly

This week’s haiku horizons prompt is “fly”. What stage are you at?

Birth
I wish I could fly
Soar above clouds and mountains
Be free as a bird

Youth
I’ve no time to stop
Much to do; so little time
If I could just fly…

Midlife
Commuting is hell
Hours of traffic daily.
If I could just fly…

Old Age
How time flies
So many regrets
Just one life

Death
Fly up to heaven
Let angels carry you home
I’ll see you again

      1. Love your comment, Al. You are absolutely right! So wise of you to say so. I’m at the beginning of the “old age” stage, but there are no regrets. My journey brought me to a wonderful place and a new life. Ha ha!

  1. There are times when the legacy of Keith Harris and Orville the Duck trample all over my enjoyment of other art forms. Sigh. But, tiresome green baby duck puppets aside, very nice πŸ˜‰

    1. Oh no, that hadn’t occurred to me before I wrote this… (interesting use of the word “other” in the phrase “other art forms”…)

      Still, look out for more inadvertent use of 70s/80s TV slogans in forthcoming haiku!

      1. Just cos Orville’s act & hit single were popular money-making ventures, doesn’t mean that it isn’t also an art form. It’s a crap art form that curls my toes & puts my teeth on edge, but so is gangsta rap and reality TV.
        But I think you might be on to something with the idea of embedding corny old catchphrases into your work. A bit like Spot The Ball, or a word search. πŸ˜‰
