fall equinox
what I have left

There's always tomorrow.

We all leave things undone...

Ah, Adelaide, but tomorrow will be shorter than today.

Thanks, Frank. Good to know I'm not alone.

In fact, I got this from the Book of Common Prayer: "what I have done and what I have left undone." It seemed to me an appropriate autumnal theme, especially, with its balanced construction (which, of course, is presented here in a truncated, and therefore unbalanced form), for the equinox. I hope it works for readers who don't catch the allusion.

Yes, an appropriate and interesting automnal theme.

Ce haïku me rappelle ce bon vieux conseil de la tribu des procrastinateurs à laquelle j'appartiens :

Pourquoi faire aujourd'hui
quelque chose qu'on peut remettre
à demain ?

Ah, Monika, I've lived by that advice for eighty years, and, I must confess, things are beginning to pile up.
