Carpe Diem Haiku *Buson “on the shortcut path”*

Today on Carpe Diem our source of inspiration is another haiku, written by Yosa Buson:

* * *
on the shortcut path,
stepping through water to cross the meadow
in the summer rains.

* * *

My mind wandered in various directions, still…I tried to stay close to the same mood:

* * *
lone traveler
his home is everywhere
along the path

* * *
weary fly
trapped in lacing of spider web
-the last shortcut

* * *

Prompt 4 – LONELINESS

Language has created the word “loneliness” to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word “solitude” to express the glory of being alone. /P.Tillich/
