#3LineTales Haiku—Week Five


Image by Glen Noble

My journey in piles.
Speed-reading my way through life.
Slow down and savor!

Or

Piles and piles of books:
a literary folly.
Dust, then read, then stack.

Which haiku do you prefer and why?

    1. Thank you Paul! I do savor when I read. Sometimes it takes forever to get through a book because I am thinking and processing so much. I just read your latest post. Good job. Singing a song she remembers was a wonderful idea.

  1. I think I prefer the first one, too. Slow down and savour, indeed. Even though I like ‘a literary folly’ in the second one. Thanks for participating again 🙂

  2. I have a journey in piles too, Angel. *sigh* Because of that I want to combine the two poems into a new third version:
    My journey in piles.
    Piles and piles of paper and books.
    Dust, then read, then stack.
    (…I added two words “and paper” to the middle line for the necessary seven syllables.)
