Turn Around

 

While you face the past
Your ass faces the future.
Turn around quickly!

A tight piece of writing and despite its american origins I prefer 'ass' in your haiku to 'arse' as the vowel sound is short echoing 'Past' in the previous verse ( to my northern ear anyway)
I enjoyed it. XX

Neat...and good advice too!
"The past provides the worst and best
To show us how to live the rest!"

Mmm - it's when they both face the ground that they stop being nice.

A cheeky haiku!

Except that it's 'arse' in English, unless it's the animal, Larissa; or American.

Nice one, haiku that is, not a...

The future will come
if December twenty two
doesn't show us a bum

Thank you Tony for giving me an idea to write another haiku.

Why do you wish to face the future?
A future that will never come,
Whichever way you turn Larisa
The past has you in its grip
And its eyes upon your bum.

What a super Haiku Larisa! It scans and it's funny and it makes a lot of sense all round :)

Looking back
Saucy bottom
Little cheeky
Forward thinking.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. I had a t-shirt with this on it back in the 70's. Great poem! Take care, Tony.
