End

End George Hodan
George Hodan

dead tree floats

river takes him home

the cold of Winter

~

dead tree floats

travels far from its place

powerful river

~

river takes him home

streams flow from my eyes

strong wind blows

~

the cold of Winter

numbs my fingers

the end of hope

Continuing on the Northern journey through Bashos superb extended haibun, today we learn about the loss of his hopes to meet a fellow haiku poet named, Kasugi Issho. He arrives only to find that he has recently died.

Inspiration,

the tomb also shakes
my weeping voice is
the autumn wind

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.
