Writing with Chiyo-Ni (5) - "waterweed" - July 26, 2014

Today's is the last July post dedicated to the famous woman haiku poet Chiyo-Ni at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.  Let's have a look at hr poem:

floating away, despite
the butterfly’s weight on it

© Chiyo-Ni

This haiku brought to my mind the image of the flow of life, which continues to flow despite the ups and downs of emotional "interference" ... whether they be joyous, sad, frightening or enraged ... emotions flair, but pass and like floating weeds life continues.

the river flows
under the bridge endlessly
though mosquitoes bite

the branch floats by
playing ducks squawk and dive
on river Sarca

(C) G.s.k. '14
