Haiku – View

#1 – Pessimist
Walking the old beat.
Promised never to return.
Age shifts your viewpoint.

#2 – Optimist
The view from the bridge,
Youth’s promise refined by age,
Rewards the walker.

  1. Optimistically… I give a walker a temporary job, and promise to find it a new home when the time comes! πŸ™‚

  3. Ah yes, such wise words beautifully shaped into haiku! I am grumpier too as I age or perhaps I just say what I think more. I see my poem reflects the “view” of the optimist…

  4. Magnificent view. I love your splitting optimist and pessimist. Using prompts and turning them around to gracefully. Youth vs older but one looking back and feeling the view while the other letting age make them old. I do believe your are only old if you stop seeing how alive you are. Very inspirational. – jk
