Penultimated Acme #Haiku #Poetry

A haiku written by Lee Sonogan


In the big picture, few of our careers live up to the dreams we nursed when we were young. In fact, one underside of success is that it’s nearly always penultimate, and so every accomplishment merely raises the bar. Lionel Shriver

Climax widow’s peak,

Riveted to the relish spot,

Astute well-groomed sleek!

When wisdom reaches the acme of perfection, it will suppress the vicious instincts and injurious desires. – Ali Ibn Abi Talib
