Poetry – Haiku – House for Sale 5 – A poem collaboration between Suzette Benjamin and Goff James

The fifth in a series of haiku poems, House for Sale, inspired by a dialogue twixt Suzette Benjamin and Goff James.

House for Sale 


Memory’s plaster
Old homestead in new stucco
House for sale

House for sale
Numerous old tales remain
Time for moving on


Nostalgia lingers
Faded doorways weaker grow
House for sale

Old doors closed
Finding a fresh perspective
Travelling new roads


Courage packed
Adventures labelled
Moving on

Heading west
New horizons sought
Waggons roll


Waggons burdened full
Hope and faith the co-pilots
Trailblazing frontiers

Dangers uncharted
Uncertainties ebb and flow
Morrow’s new dawn wakes


Adventure beckons
The unknown trust’s lighthouse guides
An eagle in flight.

Rations running low
The sun high in the noon sky
Shade and water sought
