Haiku Friday: Dust

Here’s my haiku for today, on the topic of Dust:

in a billion years

no one left to remember

we’ll all be space dust

It’s Haiku Friday again.  For the past twenty years or so, it has been my practice to write one haiku every day. Every Friday I share a haiku here, about whatever topic I happen to choose.  I invite you to write a haiku on this topic too, and share it with me and the readers of this blog.  Just write it in the Comments below. The only rules are: 1) your haiku must be about the named topic; 2) you must follow the 5-7-5 syllable format; 3) no obscenities or hate (I will delete those).  That’s it.

  1. (In the spirit of Dr. Seuss)

    Science put men on
    the moon, so why can’t we just
    eliminate dust?

    Pesky moon grit just
    covering ev-er-y-thing!
    (Billion dollar dust!)

    Over forty years
    gone since one small step for man,
    we need a grand plan!

    A Presidential
    challenge to conquer all dust;
    A Race to The Clean:

    “Obliterate dust
    by the end of the decade!”
    May, Two-thousand Thirteen.

  2. Another haiku explosion of creativity, so cool. Who knew Dust could be so inspirational?

    And Linda, your poignant haiku brought me back to how I felt when my own daughter left home. Really lovely.

    Thank you for playing Haiku Friday.
