New. Uncertain.

This haiku came to me after observing several new workers at our local grocery store. There is something very difficult about the early days on a job, and I always want to encourage the new people. Things will get more comfortable, I want to say, just make it through the first few days…

The new employee.
Smile small. Voice low. Hands fumble.
Third day on the job.
