chewing on dried salmon.

    A simple, yet complex haiku in that so much back story is apparent. Alone in the cold morning of another day... enduring, and aware of the small pleasure that is his fortune to have. Embracing the positive in the midst of less than ideal circumstances. Open and inviting enhancement as all good haiku should. (Report) Reply

    Even though is written by a japanese poet and it is a Haiku, it reminds me of the cold mornings of Korea, the water in the kettle mixed with corn to purify it. Simplicity. (Report) Reply
