Haiku – View

#1 – Pessimist
Walking the old beat.
Promised never to return.
Age shifts your viewpoint.

#2 – Optimist
The view from the bridge,
Youth’s promise refined by age,
Rewards the walker.

  1. Magnificent view. I love your splitting optimist and pessimist. Using prompts and turning them around to gracefully. Youth vs older but one looking back and feeling the view while the other letting age make them old. I do believe your are only old if you stop seeing how alive you are. Very inspirational. – jk
