"Rust to dust" - what beautiful and poignant words, and they sound so marvellous together.

I love it, so true 'rust to dust'.
Thank you for your comments on my blog.

Hey, promise me it applies to bagpipes too! if it does, it's worth it! (Just kiddin' Jock). Simple and gutsy.

Catalyst said...

Very well done!

Martin H. said...

Very nice.

Doctor FTSE said...

Love the way the neat Haiku and Stafford's comment fall between the Rock of Rabbie Burns and the Hard Place of bagpipe music!

Brigid said...

Beautiful words and so simply and well written.

Tattered and Lost said...

As I sit here on my rusty dusty, your words are the perfect end to my day.

Lovely.

Love the suggestion that best planned "pipes" have a habit of working toward a used by date! And rather than be archived in a museum, simply return to dust as will "man". A neat little haiku!

Really liked this, lovely play on best laid plans as well as dust to dust. Does a lot in a very short space. Great.
