Domestic haiku

the bed
is old and creaky -
like our bones.




new towels absorb -
old towels scratch and dry
through friction

very domestic ... i like these, they feel a tad bit uncomfortable, it works very well and has me thinking, i like thought provoking poetry, nice :)

The second reminds me of the recent family reunion (which stretched on for several days) I've been a part of. Dealing with the very young and then scurrying to accommodate very old relatives... Such a feat! (Hence, my reference point for the 'towels' as a metaphor. Heehee.)
