Retirement Hobby: Try Haiku
by Ruth Johnson
I am fortunate in two ways. Local Senior Center has a group meeting to stir up creative ideas in writing. The leader suggested we try Haiku (groans). Many days later, I tried it.
Wonderful . Wrote 10 and printed them. Gave a copy to daughter-in-law. Praises galore.
No Senior Center or lovely daughter-in-law? Start writing. Tell everyone. Suggest getting together to encourage others. You know the drill!
Sorry. You can"t have the daughter-in-law but your future groupies are out there waiting for you to find them. Go! Search!!!
Here are two of my Haiku's: In my later years
I am happy that I am
In control of me
Bring back your childhood
To know the joy of playing
Is one of life's gifts
