broken string
we pay the busker
for silence

Oh these are lovely haikus! A wonderful pairing Don! And the Issa haiku spot on. The post is too good.

Issa's Untidy Hut said...

Yes, Charles, and nobody is getting any younger.

Issa's Untidy Hut said...

Thanks, Greg.

Issa's Untidy Hut said...

Aditya! I'll take too good every time.
