Haiga, Haiga & Haibun

Sixty-five

May the 15’th. Anno Domino 2016.

a poemtalk by Jens-Christian Kjær AKA Ashi.

Early, fairly,

my eyes fighting for focus

soft sounds from Livingroom

suggest that the telly is online

low gurgle from a coffee pot

first cup of coffee is poured

after a night’s rest

my senses click on

one after another

the fact that this is

just another day enter

and yet

the fact is that’s not

I don’t actually feel the difference

but, the thought

sixty-five years

burrowed, spent and yes

not payed for yet

better get up

and face the day –

the years

come and goes

even without me
