Haiku

Lately as I continue working on a new book, I’ve been reading, rereading Natalie Goldberg and her Three Simple Lines: A Writer’s Pilgrimage into the Heart and Homeland of Haiku.
I read this Haiku book
right after I bought it.
Now
this blue book
reads
brand new to me.

“What you want to acquire, you should dare to acquire by any means. What you want to see, even though it is with difficulty, you should see. You should not let it pass, thinking there will be another chance to see it or to acquire it. It is quite unusual to have a second chance to materialize your desire.” (Natalie Goldberg is quoting Buson (died 1784) the great haiku writer who came after Basho.
As I contemplate moving (once again) I think about having second chances to materialize a desire.
When you think of your desires – What are yours? How will you make them real?

To readers who reach out: I apologize; I post on Facebook, Goodreads and Linkedin, but I do not respond. I usually respond to email.
