broken clock
a bark beetle ticks 
in the wooden case

    Nicely evocative moment. Set me to thinking about and feeling the passage of time. Thanks!

    old man on a bench
    his beating heart marks moments
    wind blows through the trees

    a clock that ticks
    a time that always changes
    but never dies

    It's always good to have a haiku that uses sound as well as something visual.

    I look forward to seeing more of your work, thank you being part of the bark beetle's ticking.

    _You relate an insect to a human product; IT, is the time keeper. But insects pay no attention to our time's ticks and tocks, and perhaps we all can learn something here. _Nicly done Artur. (oh,I own an old Puch.)

    the intersection of mechanic clocktime and existence, a living being
    (and what an inspiration, since a few days I happen to be preparing a collage with broken clocks)

    Glad you've come abroad, Artur. (I've just been celebrating the birth of my half-Polish grandaughter; my first grandchild, and I'm soon to be 75.)

    A ku that lingers beyond the first impression.
