1 – 18

sticking at hard work
commutes long hours for me
keeps money coming
© Freya Pickard 2017
While I was ill, my soulmate was tempted to give up work, in order to care for me. But had he done that, we would have lost everything. (Sick pay and illness benefits do not pay the bills).
This haiku is part of my CARE series.

  1. Loving, yet understanding care in many forms, extra bonus points for your soulmate.

  2. What a valuable mate! May heaven bless him. 🙂
    I always think of haiku as so aesthetic and unworldly. Somehow the need for hard work and money coming in seems so pedestrian. 😉
