Haiga 710 Vincent Tripi haiku 2
Haiku by Vincent Tripi (USA). Artwork by myself.
When I started living in Honolulu, I lost my Seiko watch. I had to get another one but I did not have money. Then I found a Timex at a drug store and the price was affordable. The Timex did not look as good as my lost Seiko, but I was happy to have time on my wrist again.
In college days, I drifted into a stage where I no longer care about keeping time. I was an art student and time was simply irrelevant. And besides, I was living in a paradise island of Hawaii.
At about the time I got married more than 35 years ago, I became in need of a watch to be on time for dates with my fiance. I bought a Seiko watch, which according to the store owner, had been sitting around more than 5 years in the showcase. I got discount on it. I still use the watch time to time, and it ticks fine. Good watch really lasts.
