Autumn breeze --
all these age spots
on my hands

Great image against this stupid saying that a man is as old as he feels, and a woman as old as she looks. Here we see that there is no acceptable alternative to aging ... I take my hat off to this haiku.

Best wishes
Ralf

PS: You're right. You are in place :-)

I can see these age spots on the photo. So the ku comes close to a haiga. I agree to Gillena Cox: This spotted bamboo(?) and these age spots fit very well.

Best wishes
Rudi

p.s.: It's not bamboo, Rudi. It's a kind of grass, Miscanthus sinensis Strictus.
