Here-A-Ku, There-A-Ku, Everywhere A Haiku

Having awakened several times during the night, I finally ceased resisting and arose early for the morning, remembering some dream fragments. There were several that might have inspired a haiku (or a limerick.) These are variations on the themes of past, present, and future which were interlaced into one dream. Whether you like them or not, the reader may at least be thankful that nothing was written about a portion of another dream concerning the frustration of trying to clean projectile cat poop from carpeting.

Tightly grasp your Now

Far too fast becomes your Past

Future's not yet lived


Learn Now's lessons well

Too soon fading into Past

There will be a quiz


Old man once told him

Get a good education

They can't take from you


Older now himself

He's come to realize that

Aging surely can


Unwilling to stay

In the Now, he meanders

The paths of his Past

Peace, Doc
