I just loved this episode Chèvrefeuille! And I also find Basho the master of masters when it comes to haiku. Oh what a wonderful place he came from. Would love to visit Mie Prefecture.
in surrounding waves – connection
eternity to see/a
I could also write …
the power of creation – nature
Lack of nature …
That’s a real problem in our world! …. I think … young people more interesting in their smartphones … tapping tangents … playing video games … often about battles … but also building societies … in that technic world … totally lost from the real … such a loss …
What will happen with the field of relations … ability to make close human relationships … “I wonder … wonder I do” ….
However I am sure the young people will get skills in special fields and that their brains find corners waiting to be developed … which are more or less sleeping in our brains …
I am just as sure about how happy I am for my connection to nature. Half of me grown up in a city – with my parents – the other half growing up in nature in the deepest forest – with my aunt and uncle. My uncle was my master …. life and living, creativity, imagination, intelligence, smart solutions, philosophy, attention about what’s got real value, … I am so thankful!
walking life’s track
covered with spruce and pine – needles
in pace with ants
And from other point …
in that square box – only
games flashing minds
I am amazed about how short periods – here and there – during a lifetime can characterize and form ones personality. I know very well what has influenced me during life.
What has influenced Basho – delivered from him to us … to enjoy and find so inspiring … that’s … his … “eternal life” … one influence to another … isn’t it beautiful …
(… but I know it also has a dark side … that influences … making life so hard for some … not to forget … )
I love thinking and writing … or … for me … I think … writing the thinking … with a big smile …
