O is for Old

Scornicesti isn't a modern town. Most of its buildings have witnessed the change . The apartment buildings are relatively new, but the houses , the villas and mansions - they know the rhythm and the pulse of the town.

slowly aging town -
old houses and roads and men
guarding their secrets

under low rooftops
April sun burning old walls -
some swallows nesting

rain clouds on spring sky
darkening my surroundings -
town's greying buildings

no statues, no art -
old people on old benches
in the morning sun


  1. Lovely haiku. The last one is especially beautiful.

  2. I agree, the last one is actually really cute.
