Today’s Haiku (August 30, 2011)

山を出るときどんぐりはみな捨てる 北 登猛

yama o deru toki donguri wa mina suteru

 when I leave the mountain

 I throw away

all acorns

  1. This is a very interesting one. We’ve just been through a hurricane with days with no electricity. During that time we survive on certain basics. Funny, once things return to normal your tastes change… you no longer need “acorns”…
    Reading this right after my experience certainly enhances a personal meaning for me. Many thanks. Merrill
