    I saw the doctor
    And told him about my hip
    It was just so sore

    He said, that's because
    That hip's seventy years old
    You must accept that

    Fancy that I said
    This one's seventy also
    Nothing's wrong with it

    The hot barren earth
    Drinks of the falling dew drops
    Which are of no worth...……….haiku #1

    With the rising sun
    The dew drops steam and shrival
    And then they are gone......……...…..haihu #2

    The man prays for rain
    His dehydrated body
    Praying, waits in vain...…………..haiku #3

    The dried bones--bleached white
    Strewed round the dry water hole
    Glow in the moonlight...……...…..haiku #4

    They rattle and walk
    To the man whose swollen tongue
    Cannot scream or talk...………..haiku #5

    They sing songs of death
    Soothing the soul of he who
    Longs for his last breath...……...haiku #6

    The hot sun awakes
    The crows from the branch above
    Feed by a dry lake...……………..haiku #7

    Haze in the still air.
    Bike trail gives off puffs of dust,
    and sweat stings my eyes.
