new snow
the path you made last night
has gone with you   -   Garry Gay
grey remnants, blot to
noble efforts extended
to benefit man   -   Hank’s

new snow
the path you made last night
has gone with you   -   Garry Gay
need create a new path
to obliterate ills of
past and chart anew   -   Hank’s

Shared with Chev's CARPE DIEM #63 where one is to match Garry's
haiku with one's own and Leo's Haiku Heights #305 with prompt  - grey

    1. Oh my gosh! Shouldn't have thought I was off my prime. Too late now. How I love to see you in your lovely kebaya, Ninot Ma'am! Care to get another lovely one for next year? Hope to be there then!

  7. Your second speaks to reaching out and creating change in the world. That's my kind of poem, Hank! So glad to be back after a bout with depression and some other "shite" - part of which is posted today. Peace, Amelita
