Rapids

Rapids Vince Mig

river rushes forth

tosses everything aside

I cross to the temple

Inspiration:

the rough sea
flowing toward Sado Isle (*)

the River of Heaven

 

© Basho (Tr. Chèvrefeuille)

(*) When direct control from mainland Japan started around the 8th century, the island’s remoteness meant that it soon became a place of banishment for difficult or inconvenient Japanese figures. Exile was a very serious punishment, second only to the death penalty, and people weren’t expected to return.

And

an outcast I am
day dreaming along the seashore;
Sado Isle beckons

dark clouds drifting
waves become higher
a rough sea

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
