Living in the past
Dreaming of days gone away
Can never go back

Learn from your mistakes
Remember what went wrong, not
To blame, to improve

Looking backwards, while
moving forwards is a great
way to crash and burn

Without memories
To guide our future actions
We will never learn

Thinking always of
yesterday is a good way
To miss your today

Memories are a
blessing and a curse. To live
in regret, to learn

One thought on “haiku for you: memories

  1. I like these very much. Exploring notions of learning from the past but not being stuck dwelling on it or you may miss the beauty of today is an excellent message you have communicated well through every one these haikus. Excellent job 🙂
