You don't know where you are going. You don't know how to get there. And you arrive just the same. Ghanaian saying

Haiku: Illusion – Peeling the Onion

This morning I ironed
Set up the old ironing board
Metal and sturdy

Hardly worse for wear
Dependable companion
Since I was a bride

Those days behind me
Now white-haired, bent with aging
I appear different

Shape of old woman
Listener, story teller
Beloved grandmother

Yet deep within me
Abides all I ever was
Gifted at my birth
