Leaves fall —
all those questions
rise back up in me

  1. okay, it’s clear i have to learn to let go of my thinking on haiku. i like this. i like the connection between falling leaves and rising questions because of the oppositional movement in direction – and that it takes place in the mind by connecting to something that takes place in the concrete world around us. multiple connectioning. cool.

    white paper
    full of unwritten words
    a brush load of ink

    • Yes, it’s interesting, I find that writing haiku for me is a process of letting go of my thinking, watching it drift away for a while, and then running frantically back after it and catching it before it gets away completely. 🙂
