Haiku 44

Haiku 44

Unlock life's horrors :
Run out of health, money, time -
Left with pain and death.

Labor is a job's 
Own reward bettering self -
Idleness stagnates.

"A job worth doing, 
Is a job worth doing well."
Gran'Pa Downie said.

We rise together,
Or, bickering apart, fall -
Up, the way ahead.

The best fruit's up top,
Tall ladders need wide, strong feet -
Climb high, choose sweetest.

When life's a bummer,
Smile watching birds, flowers, bees -
Same place all headed.

Ronald C. Downie
