Forget-Me-Nots

 
 
 

While my house burns down,
 
I gather forget-me-nots
 
from the neighbor’s yard.

    First I coughed to cover my laugh. Then I stopped and thought about it. I don’t think the fire was a visible fire.

  6. A nice haiku. The image you have painted here is very sad, but the twist in the last sentence is so wonderful. Thank you for sharing this with Haiku My Heart.

  11. So interesting … there is so much meaning beyond these words. It’s like the forget-me-nots are a symbol of hope. Rebuilding the house and a new beginning .. . great metaphor. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  12. oh … and the forget-me-not could also represent holding on to good memories … I really enjoyed this, thank you.
