Genealogy (sort-of haiku)

By Eilene Lyon

 

It is the job of

The ones who are left, to do

The remembering.

  1. My own take from 2003:

    Genealogy

    Musty old paper and jaundice photographs
    Pave the path like stepping stones
    To the doors of our ancestors.

    We walk this path with hesitance and hope
    Seeking to find a some small clue
    To who and why we are.

  2. Not just ‘sort of’! That’s a lovely haiku! I once had a quick thought that I should write a haiku relating to each ancestor I research, based on what i find out about their life. (Yeah, that hasn’t happened yet. )

    1. It’s good to tackle that labeling even if you don’t have kids(as we don’t either). You never know who might be interest in the future. Sometimes the people who have the photos don’t even know who is in them, but when I collect enough from various sources, I can start to figure them out.
