6/8/10 – a 686 haiku

Got a bit blindsided today – as much or mostly by my reaction. Cf. C.S. Lewis. Decided after writing a few, that I would go with the positive.

new stars keep being born
shine wondrous through a jaded man
told too old for these things

  9. so yr talking about a bucket list or something??… mmm….sometimes it’s nice just to consider being reborn at the new dawn, every morning…

  10. Thank you all for you encouraging words! It was that I was shocked – and flustered and somewhat embarrassed – by my feelings toward someone, a much younger woman peripherally in my life. I realized my emotions have probably made assumptions, but then again that’s what humans do…
