Theme Thursday - Over The Hill (Two Ways)


I

Achy toe. Tin ear.
Floater eye. Oh, my! Guess I
Am over the hill!

II

Explore the side roads.
Go - gutsy - 'round life's next bend.
On! Over the hill!

Quite the early bird!
Despite the gloomy topic,
Your haiku's a treat.

Actually, it's only gloomy in the one way. I've always been rather like that Italian race-car driver and try not to think too much about what's behind me. Rather, I'm intrigued by what's around that next bend and what's over that next hill. (Loved your "haikuian" response, btw.)

Hidy-ho, AM. Just figured out how to 'follow' your blog. Tried to comment on Sandra's blog once and got all jumbled up with Google.--Chili

Once they go over the hill, sometimes they never come back.

Floater in the eye. God, I get that if I spend too much time in front of the PC. Plays havoc with the mascara!

California Girl said...

That is different. Sandra says it's haiku and I'm not a follower of that so I take her word for it.
