I could write – But didn’t

in shade of spring
we stop and get lost in kissing
a slur of life

I could write … ‘a slur of love’ … but I found that more limited … it’s not necessary with love … in every situation … sometimes it’s just enough to be able to enjoy life …

I have to reflect about this more …

But I know … I can enjoy life as well as love … being in love … or …. without being in love … making love is also enjoying life …

Or?

Tonight off for a Spanish night ….

I turn my back
on Buddha and face
the cool moon


Interesting history about Shiki, I think, when reading. I get curious and search more haiku by him. I must say I find them a bit difficult to like and he will probably not be a favorite of mine. But the haiku I choose above – I think goes well with his history – being radical and not allowed to give public speech. I think he felt a cool and hostile society then.

saw the country
and returned—now deep at night
I lie in bed and
fields of mustard flowers
bloom before my eyes


I myself had a wonderful day today – meeting friendly people and feeling spring – also love – in the air. I walked along the Danube passed a young couple …

she giggled
swaying her head ‘n hair backwards – and
he kissed her

… I smiled and felt happy for them – went on my walk. After passing two bridges I sat down. Studied the Japanese – or Chinese – turists modeling with Chain Bridge and Buda castle in background. A young handsome man did beautiful moves – Qigong – while his girlfriend filmed him with iPhone. I enjoyed and felt such nice harmony.
I laid back and closed my eyes … poetry popped up …

I’m sitting
by the river Danube
feeling the wind
dancing in my face
and playing with my hair

*

whirls of water
coming from down under
to hit the water surface
just to play with
the sun rays

*

people passing by
know nothing, nothing at all – about
wind and water playing

… this very minute … a moment I liked so much. I got a crazy idea. Why not film and record! So I did. But when listening I thought … how sad and sleepy I sound … that’s not me. Think it was because I didn’t want anyone to hear what I was doing.

Would you like to listen to it? Perhaps I can get enough guts to publish 😉

If you want – I will publish here … it’s on the way to Youtube just now …. ready … scroll down … 😉

So here it is … (I think I have to ask my granddaughter about advice for recording) …
