SENRYU – HAIKU REPLY | Chased by Death


death has chased me
three times pulled from the sea
crowbar… past my head
death teasing… the Grim reaper
I laughed in his face
I ponder lost life…
many friends… younger than me
I cry at the thought
one more… i forgot…
sat on a canyon bridge wall
fainted… note… I write
three line tales… all true
evoked by you being chased
finding home from home

    1. You certainly did
      for that was not
      thunder you heard
      up in the monsoon
      filled cloudy sky
      my heart pounding
      thinking I might die
      Now that was scary
      2M long weighed a ton
      flying through the air
      heard the swish of air
      as it flew past my ear
      came off a tank
      testing its emergency
      breaking so close
      to my life taking.
      the thought of what
      could of been
      turned me a shade
      of sickly green
      literally made me
      very poorly
      to think how close
      I’d come to death
      at 22 all very true
