flotsam to jetsam 

life ebbs to the pull of time 

incessant decay

past fills with the futures

wave of actuality

Hi Desmond

Some poets run on incessantly
Leading ‘in my case’ to metaphysical indigestion.

Saying so much in so few words my friend...
is terse verse.

Thank you Martin for your kind words much appreciated. I too do wish, that one day I will write longer poem. Hopefully as good as you. Don, I too like haiku as well as senryu and tanka I think they make you slow down and take a different view on everyday happenings that we would otherwise take for granted. Thank you Keith and Avishek for the likes

All the best des

To me the art of poetry is putting an idea into as few words as possible. Why I like haiku. And it's challenge......

Not easy, as you say Martin....
