The Object of Pursuit of an Inner-Saboteur



old man bowed his head

awaiting the winter rest

hasty frozen grip


in the burning sun

on a sunday afternoon

glass of lemonade


he arrived early

a father-daughter embrace

green-eyed freckled girl



  1. I love your haiku Monika. I particularly liked the first one as there are so many possibilities as to what or who the ‘old man’ could be. I thought of the old man as being a tree branch perhaps, or a tibetan monk in the hills. Beautiful imagery.

    Sophie, that’s my favourite one too, I didn’t think of a tree, but I love the idea!
