One Deep Breath - Weathering/Aging

The haiku prompt for this week at One Deep Breath is weathering/aging.

The first is inspired by my own reflection in the mirror.

White strands sprinkle through
My brown locks like foil
Icicles on tree.

~~~~

Our House

One hundred fifty
Years of daily life under
This old, metal roof


~~~~~~~~

This one is inspired by my cookbook that is falling apart and bulging.

Recipes

Passed down, collected
cooked, simmered, baked, concocted
Savor memories

All very nice haiku - my favorite is the cookbook tribute.

Hi Tiffany
I like Our House best.

They're both very nice, but the second say so much with so few words. I can only imagine all the lives that have lived under that roof.

really like the comparison of the white strands to shiny foil icicles on a tree... nice imagery, plus it highlights the truth that white strands are an adornment.
