Intersections: Haiku

For One Single Impression, where the poets this week speak of intersections and interactions and interstellar travel. [Or not.]

"X" marks the spot where
we joined to laugh and revel.
And went separate ways

Do you know how many years ago I graduated from high school? Should I be coy? Nah, it's not my style. It's been 30 years. I've been out of high school longer than at least one of my blogging buddies has been on this earth. [Hey, Jenica!]

My life is filled with X's along the way. [And quite a few exes, too.] Those X's started long before high school; I am an Air Force brat, after all. Moving around from place to place has you connecting and disconnecting, meeting and leaving, coming together and coming apart all the time. Reminds me a big of blogging, actually.

Now, go read the good poetry posted this week at One Single Impression.

X-es mark the spot - some for me, too and I have to say there was no gold in them thar x-es. :)
