A green river flows,
After every meander –
The Buddha returns.
Ah… yes! Meandering does that !
Doesn’t it just! 🙂
deep meaning here…..a mirror of life
Thanks Joanne. The Buddha is ever-inspiring 🙂
Thanks Bjorn 🙂
Welcome Basho Barr at Carpe Diem. I am glad that you have found your way to thid daily haiku meme. I am your host on Carpe Diem.
What a wonderful haiku you have shared here with us. Very well done with a deeper spiritual layer hidden it. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you. I love looking at your Carpe Diem site, your haiku, the ones people share and the ones you quote from the masters!
Very nice, indeed.
Thank you very much 🙂
Maybe too literal but floating on a quiet river can definitely bring on a certain state of mind.
Absolutely! Canoeing on the river in summer is one of my favourite pastimes. This river was green because of stirred up deposits and represents the meandering emotions which distract us from that state of mind, but the Buddha state always returns. Thank you for your likes and comment.
We love floating too, now in inflatable kayaks. Also, I meant my interpretation might have been too literal, not your haiku. 🙂
Yes, we have an inflatable canoe. It’s great. No worries – I understood. It just gave me an excuse to add some notes to the haiku 🙂
Beautiful… I love the return of Buddha at the end… 😉
Thank you Eliz. I love your haiku and quote on ‘pride’. 🙂
