Tuesday Poem by Akin Akinwumi

Five Haikus

1.
I put down the year
Like a mad dog. Once welcomed,
It ran off with me.

2.
Standing at the door,
Unannounced and hat in hand,
Is the beginning.

3.
Now is the right time
To turn a new leaf and ink
The feathers of thought.

4.
Slowly becoming
Me, that which I fear and flee,
I end up myself.

5.
Seed my days with life;
Of morns and dews and chirps and
Roads worth sojourning.
