it is sooo .beutifull!
The stoppage nowhere
Time is marathon runner
Timeout love seeks Iust
Raining of the outside heart
Never can quench its thirsty
Three lines explain a lot.Great haiku.
Bitterness somehow make us appreciate sweetness more,
Seasons may changed, but it never make soil less loyal to stay, to experience
Feelings may changed, but hearts still have room as it never blocked emotions to stay.
right, dear Soul. Yet, this 'traditional' haiku wants to grasp the passage of the season and provide a parallel with human life (an aspect of life, at the very least) . Sadness is present, but it is felt as a component of the cycle of life (centered on the acceptance of transience - impermanence) .
It is autumn in New Zealand now, somehow an appropriate time to end a love affair.
yes, the pic is really terrific. I've used it for the ebook - unfortunately I've found an image as good as this one for the paperback cover.
I guess you have developed a good understanding of Japanese poetry, which bases poet's emotions on nature and focus on mono-no-aware, the suppressed melancholy. I like this lucid, concise haiku very much!
Thanks, Henry. Indeed I love Japanese traditional haiku (and the best gendai, also)
