The Sad Telephone

It sits silently

There on the wall, cord hung down

As if it was sad-

Had no rings today,

Hubby, wife or children,

Grandma or grandpa,


No “hellos’ at all,

Not a conversation held

With anybody.

nice and clear!


Solid and the Haiku mode 0f 5-7-5 syllables – add a blank line after the first to separate the two haikus. The second one lacks the intuitive leap between the last line (being a list – c/be ‘and no relation’) and the rest but haikus 1 and 3 are sound… great stuff.
