“It does not matter …” Haiku – August 21, 2015

walking slowly with his cane
again like yesterday

even the old dog
visits his favourite haunts
though half blind

though shattered and sad
she writes another poem
beautiful dawn

Written on August 19 for:

 Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille August 19 th 2015 “use that quote”

[…] “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop”.[…]  by Confucius (551-479 BCE)

toro-toro to shiriyake chidori mata doko e

slowly, slowly
plover with burnt tail feathers
where to now?
