On life and its vagaries

My friend’s haiku

with 3 comments

Late evening….. Sea shore……..

A few goats grazing on paper waste, peeing and dropping those black pearly capsules with a clatter on to the sand now and then from their behinds….

Then ……… friend, looking terribly shattered……..

I waited. After a series of perpetuities he asked me in a feeble voice.

You write Haiku’s and stuff, don’t you?

To claim that would be sin. I meekly averred.

Well, then my friend, I have a haiku for you, and please for god’s sake, publish it, it could be a matter of life and death to someone out there.

I had to promise.

He took a long and shivering breath, trying to control everything inside with a great effort, and comes up with this:

My friend’s haiku

Never throw a Frisbee back

At the girls……….

It would keep coming back

………….Be kind to yourself!

(Note: The sentiment expressed is his own; I have nothing to do with it!)
