Haiku #20: old loves

Ever get the ick thinking about old romances, friendships, even coworkers? May is my wedding anniversary month, and Jonathan and I are coming up on ten years together. Every day I'm grateful for him and for all the good people in my life today. Washing away what no longer serves you is a good feeling:

old loves…
barnacles encrust
a collapsing pier
