footprints

Carpe Diem Modern Times Haiku #2 Margaret Chula's "following my footprints"


The host of Carpe Diem has introduced those who visit and participate to yet another wonderful haiku poet, Margaret Chula.  I bow to the beauty of her poetry.

following my footprints
of fifty years ago
those endless summers

© Margaret Chula (1947 - )

Fifty summers ago I was 18 years old and had just graduated from high school.  That is the 12th grade for readers from different schooling cultures.  Young, full of a desire to leave home but no funds for higher education, I simply took a job with the same company where my mother worked.  That company had thousands of employees.  I left no footprints there.
