Poetry Friday: Two Haiku, At a Respectable Age and One Star Review

At a Respectable Age
Age covers beauty:
in wrinkled skin, tusks poised to
lower or thrust through.
One Star Review
My wrinkled eyelid
judges, assesses, and deems
you worth one trumpet.
Lore Ann Grover, 2014

What fun! Getting one trumpet sounds very damning indeed...

Creepy picture, but I love the haiku. One trumpet. Ha! Maybe just a snort.

Here's to thrusting through old age!! No lowered head for me, in spite of wrinkles that might make me worthy of only one trumpet!

Fun! Love the droll "one trumpet"

The second was my favorite as well. What fun you had writing these, I bet!
