Haiku: The Early Years…
This is not page three
Early years, part idyllic
Spent buried in books…
Curled up in a corner of my dad’s home office, book in hand, I entered the magical world of words. There, I found the sunny parts and the missing parts of my life; a world that made more sense. In this haiku, I share snippets of my early years… and I’m just being honest about the specific page numbers in my offline writings.
“Life is the childhood of our immortality.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Mystified by my childhood
Shrouded in secrets…
Some parts of my earliest years were shrouded in mystery. The inexplicable absence of certain details filled in by invented imagery.

Didn’t I have a childhood?
A doorway much lost…
As childhoods go, there were key elements missing, and when the subject was broached, the answers baffled me. What about you? Did you write page three of your autobiography? Update: If I missed checking your blog, it was because I was at the hospital with a loved one… they will be fine. •.★♥★.• Happy New Year All!•.★♥★.• Love ya!
