Carpe Diem Special *Santoka Taneda’s “walking through”*

Our inspiration on Carpe Diem Special this week is a haiku, written by a haiku poet Santoka Taneda (1882-1940):

* * *
walking through
the bush clover, the pampas grass,
walking on through them

* * *

Here’ s my attempt not to wander too far away from the same mood and spirit:

* * *
light summer breeze
walking through each cobweb
in long forgotten house

* * *

Everything was up to me now.
“You’ll know which one it is when you lay eyes on it.” He’d said urgently, “we had to bury them somewhere quickly that was recently dug.”
The conversation was cut: ”The caller you are trying to reach…”
I had to do it today or it might be too late. The heist had gone well, but they were still in hiding.
Biting my nails, I scanned the house ads in the dusty window…one, another…until YES! I couldn’t stop smiling…he knew how much I hated those clinically white fences…
“Could you prepare the sales documents?”
“Now ma’am?”
“Now! Immediately!”
