Human Nature


Urn full of knick knacks
Storage of items not used
Life is just as true

Change for the better
Always possible but then
Just human nature

Beyond redemption 
Bane of the disciplined soul

Submitted for Haiku Heights with prompt #95- Urn


  1. A great message in each one. Excellent writes.

  2. A storage place of knick knacks - telltale sign of procrastination ~

    Happy weekend ~

  3. Oh procrastination can creep up one us all
    But sometimes it is needed at ones hall
    Other times not
    Letting the soul rot
    When we should have a ball

  4. The urns in my house would have been overflowing with all my accumulated knickknacks!! Now I just won't let it collect!! Good reminder!!

  5. Very scary word, Hank. Everything in my house is full of something. It makes me crazy! Just thinking about it is enough to give me a headache and send me to have a nap.
    This human's nature is beyond redemption, and so is my husband's, when it comes to getting rid of things.

  6. Good take on urn.Keen observation and apt comparison to life! I've not thought of anything positve to write about on this prompt. Shall give it more thought :)

  7. Procrastination is my bane! You hit it right on the mark. (although my mind is a bit undisciplined) Good haiku!

  8. Dear All,
    It is agreed then. It's an affliction that affects everyone. Knick knacks or whatever are always there. We have the urge to get rid of them but in our heart of hearts we treasure them. We dread to make the move. A friend gave a tip in terms of time frame. If you don't touch it for a whole year then you'll not miss it if you get rid of it!


  9. Putting it in such a simple way.. and giving a lovely message.. great..

  10. Very well done haiku. I had to read it a few times, but ... it's really a nice one.

  11. Timely messages within ~~

  12. I thought these were great.
    I loved the image of the urn full of knick knacks not used, just as life is.

  13. deep meaning, deep message !!

    Awesome as ever :)
