Sometimes a couple of words, strung together with care and true craft, catch me. They stay on, lingering in my mind throughout the day and I am amazed.
I started following a blog a few months back, one that has taken me down new roads. A Japanese Haiku artist, http://ashiakira.wordpress.com, has caught my imagination and let it soar.
I could reblog every one of these bright, thoughtful, lovely poems, but I thought I’d just highlight one for today. It’s called “Dragonflies Crossing”
A downtown intersection
Cop’s whistle neglected”
Wonderful, the poem, stunning the artist’s reply to my comment:
I said, “Okay, so this is actually funny! Love the idea of a dragonfly on its own agenda. Good job!”
Ashi Akira responded, “Thanks. Free, safe and happy life first. Rules must come second to support the first.”
I’ll let those words swim through your mind and encourage you to visit this wonderful blog. Tell ’em Sue says “hi”.
