Loving to Love and Live

Beautiful HAIKU by ©Chèvrefeuille

ancient warriors
between battle and peace
writing haiku         

Warriors – how odd it can be – are symbols of opposites – bad and good – death and life – force and romance – …
Samurais are warriors – I wonder if they are associated with romance in the Japanese litteratur?

I have often wondered why women – some – are attracted to bad warriors. Once I wrote a letter to a man in prison. I knew who he was and I felt sorry for him. I don’t remember what he had done but it wasn’t anything like murder. There are many women writing to men in prisons – often they don’t know them. Why? Many women fall in love with gang members. Brutal men. Why?
Why don’t they set limits for behavior and actions!? I did when I was young.

the warrior
in true life of living – takes
action for love

Now maybe you think I have left my limits behind?
Some of them I have … some of them were to restrictive … some are still convenient.
I have let myself free – much more free than I was when young. Sounds good, doesn’t it?

my warrior
in possession of – a heart
I can read
clearly – the gentle kindness
about loving to – love and live

Imagine … if all soldiers and warriors … were fighting for more kindness and mor genuin love … fighting for …

… more of … Loving to Love and Live …


I tried to translate Lars Winnebäcks ”No Soldier” to English … this is the most beautiful peace song ever written … I think. Here is his song and my translation.

Calling for Change

When I read … or when doing my walk-abouts … I often get a lot of pictures in my head. Sometimes also haiku is popping up … sometimes in a frequency faster than I hardly can handle … I like this so much! It’s entertaining … my imagination is living a lively life …

Now I am reading this interesting about Tokyo – Edo … and my thoughts go to Orkney … that summer when we traveled around in north Scotland and also Orkney …
Orkney with it’s ancient interesting history and that Orkney with so powerful nature and strong sea … That strong sea there … made me wish …

calling old island
wanting to catch – the power of
moving mountains

… yes I think it sounds crazy … but however … I would like to live (safely) through one winter … in an old cottage … with a warming fire place … and windows with views … to see the furious sea moving these giant boulders …
Like living in ‘the power of nature’ … I would write that winter … and probably draw pictures too.

Oh these interesting islands … Japan … Orkney … Gotland in Sweden … and you guessed Galapagos, Tahiti … or did you mean Haiti? … so far away …
… yes so far away … where to I am dreaming about … and you are trying to figure out … there you find a mix of nature … the power of nature … the beauty of nature … its peoples creativity … and something more … I find important … for mind and living …

A completely change from now.

Would you like to … have the guts to … completely … change your life?

one life – a seed
among all the other – how
grow well together
one option – living by/in nature
slowly erasing – the other

I always strive to make – my HAIKU and my TANKA – with more than one possible interpretations.

On our Scotland journey my youngest daughter wrote a story about ”Oban”. While I – as always – on travel  … made up my life if living ”here” …
