Mixed Haiku - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

my white hair
top
disappointments

out of doctor's room
she heard the call
for hubby's mistress

bamboo
one topmost leaf dancing
with glee

youthful toil
boy nudges face against
mirror to squeeze out pimple

analysts - what they can give;
either 'sorry, time has changed'
or 'see, we were right'.

telling her
what not to do
new maid

temple
the gods and goddesses
smoked
