I really like the way this poem is set up, Rachael. My mind wants to switch the second and third lines, so the structure makes me read the poem more closely. Well done!
I have an idea this poem shows the struggle as I try to refine my work. I have cut and honed again and again, until even the original intention is changed. I think I am, at last, beginning to understand the great skill and wisdom that the haiku masters possessed. Thank you, as ever, for your erudite and sensitive comments, my friend. Have a lovely weekend 🙂
A profound, and tender, quietude is what this lovely poem exudes and elicits for me, Rachael. As the mists lift, their memory enriches and feeds the clarified path and the thirsty river. Thank you for the wisdom and beauty. Xxx
Your second sentence is beautiful and adds so much to the poem. I’ve noticed that haiku often inspire the writing of more haiku: perhaps like a helix – going around and rising upwards yet never touching the same place. That second sentence feels like it could easily be one of those. Thank you for your lovely words my friend, which are always appreciated.xxx
