Haiku 24th June 2008
What time is it Mr Wolf? 10 o'clock... What time is it Mr Wolf? 10 o'clock... What time is it Mr Wolf? Time to gobble you up!
This haiku is true in the best sense. Though Dad is not in a hospice his illness is termial and the end very close. Three year old Abigail visited Dad on the ward today and made us all play 'Mr. Wolf' and 'Ring a ring of roses' (Ring around the rosie) Dad smiled and smiled and smiled. A good day to remember.
The games we played seem to me to be a good metaphore for our adult waiting for the inevitable to happen at some unstated time soon.
