Brussels Sprouts – #Haiku

Grandfather’s handshake.

Predictable as trees and

concrete as cabbage.


NaHaiWriMo – Prompt

(Brussels Sprouts always remind me of Christmas and Christmas was a time for family. My Grandfather insisted on shaking my hand and i tried my best to avoid it. Now a life time later i miss my Grandfather and his handshakes.)

    I like ‘predictable as trees.’ Says so much!

  2. Nicely written haiku, Alan, that captures so much poignancy. Difficult, those regrets we have abut things and loved ones we avoided.
