Haiku On Age - Poem by Ananta Madhavan

We may grow older,
Prolonging lost youth in vain.
Fruits ripen on trees.


Topic(s) of this poem: growing old

Form: Haiku


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I kept to the Japanese-English metre of syllable count,
5-7-5, in all 17.
I allude to R. Browning's 'Rabbi ben Ezra': 'Grow old along with
me./ The best is yet to be.' The choice is ours:
to grow older gracefully or disgracefully.
