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.

    I must admit, there has been some warrioring in my past! A nurse once told me ”ah, women and motorcycles, goes back to the beginning of time!”

    1. … ha ha … well I didn’t tell about the time I hang around with the drivers of real cars 😉 …. I sneaked out in the nights … mum and dad didn’t know …
