high moments and low

high moments, and low
determining direction
navigating life

echoing sunset
waves of grief wash my footsteps
swallowing my heart

This“fusion” haiku (senryū ) is my response to the challenge at
Carpe Diem’s Crossroads #9 Ozaki Hosai’s “on the field”,
inspired by the words in the following two haiku by Ozaki Hosai.

on the field
where evening has died out,
my footsteps

the heart
that seeks something
I release to the sea

Carpe Diem Weekend-Meditation #29 Use That Quote
“Live your life while you have it. Life is a splendid gift. There is nothing small in it. Far the greatest things grow by God’s law out of the smallest. But to live your life, you must discipline it.”
Florence Nightingale
