an old path ~ senryū

an old path
in early morning light
new meaning

This senryū is my response to Colleen’s #TankaTuesday Weekly
Poetry Challenge No. 301, Synonyms: New & Experience.

I was so focused on the fact that I used “old path” for “experience” and “early morning light” for “new” that I overlooked the fact that I actually used “new” in the third line of this senryū.

So… here’s another senryū

this old path
in early morning light
leads forward

  1. As ever, always on the button Ken – this one gave me an immediate broad smile of recognition, as all the best haikus do… And are supposed to do… Bravo, my friend…

  2. I like the first one better as I like the idea of the familiar, the everyday, breathing again with new possibilities. We often overlook the mundane – to see it as a new avenue, even exciting (again?) is cool 😉
