A car rear view mirror can be a symbol of retrospective thoughts! Good one!

A well done haiku on retrospection!! ...but a hard way to learn a lesson or two!!

I thought this was wonderful Susie.
Clever idea using the image of a rear view mirror to symbolise looking back and learning from our mistakes.
A great read - thanks.

Sigh...The lessons we learn from pain are the toughest ones...Wish we had this kind of rear view mirror in life too :)

An excellent verse, Susie. Sometimes it is only in looking back that we can gain the perspective we need and learn the lessons to be found. As long as we don't try to live back there...
