One thought on “beautiful life

  1. To expand on your haiku in a wordy western way:

    The rain when it falls doesn’t vex me,
    Let me stumble and fall into graves;
    The mists make me blind, it can’t trouble my mind
    For I’m just walking on, walking on.

    I swim in the water with serpents
    And the salt gets into my hair,
    I’m walking through Hell, Eldorado as well
    And all seven seas have I fared.

    Oh, sometimes a hummingbird’s beauty
    And sometimes a journey through flames;
    Yes I’ve died and been reincarnated
    And from diamonds I’ve fashioned my dreams.
    Josef Kainar
