One Single Impression: Waiting / Haiku Heights: Wisdom

.
Waiting

new generation
waiting, the tide will come in
they sweep it back out

old generation
waiting also, just to see
they know can't be done

This one when read together sounded really wise and I guess this set can only come with age, cheers!

Ah...the generation gap, expressed so well. But aren't we bridging that gap a bit more these days, with the Internet? I like to think so.

Happy Week Jim.

Hello Jim,
The young ones of today think they know everything when in fact, they really don't have a clue. You speak the truth my friend! Nicely done!
Thanks for sharing & visiting.

I think each generation has its own time and searching for meaning ~

Great to see you in HH ~
