No longer able
to kick up his heels with joy,
old man needs his cane.

  1. A sad sight but the streets are full of them. I pray I can keep my mind and able to take care of my self.

  2. this would frustrate me as well growing old sucks!

  3. That can be frustrating as sure…Not being able to walk under their own steam…..But that is a truth we all face in life at one stage I guess

  4. This indeed can be a frustrating time in life. I do not look forward to it!

  5. Beautiful and sadly true. Lovely haiku!

  6. This is a sad scene. I second the previous comments.

    I like the haiku.

  7. Well done but made me feel sad. I assume the photos are your own. You illustrate the realities of life.

  8. That is why I am afraid to be alone for my whole life. I’m kinda worried to become old being single forever. Alteast, when I have a husband then the two of us will cross the street together while holding hands still.

  9. A fitting progression that is likely to happen to all the macho men. It is a frightening prophecy no less

  10. Yep, I can feel that frustration. No fun getting old… 😦 Well done!

  11. wow an amazing blog you have. superb haikus, shots …..
