Vivid images. I've stared at the haiku trying to discern meaning. A lot is suggested. More is left unsaid. It's almost like a zen koan.Judy
Hi Judy,I think often, haiku is a lot like a riddle. Understanding the meaning, requires the reader to figure it out. Then again - this haiku may be nothing more than a Zen moment. I can tell you what inspired me to write these words, and what it means to me, but really, I wrote with my heart and little logic.I appreciate the time you take to read and ponder my poems. Thanks for that, and for encouraging, and supporting this latest endeavour.Cheers
"Cast the shadows out"--what a wonderful imperative :)
