    yes, the sky is blue
    regardless one wants it or not,
    life goes on,
    we must let go
    if must or have to,
    thank you for the timeless Haiku,

    Thanks! Also, I changed some stuff on my blog. I have to allow everyone who visits. Is your username tasmith1122? I allowed that user, and I’m hoping it’s you!

    Wow. I understand this poem. It’s like, even if you do something wrong, life goes on, the sky is blue.

  9. Sandy says:

    I think this is good, too. It’s what we notice, isn’t it?

    This one has that strong feel of simple and to the point. I like that. It’s like cutting off that ego-other.

      Thanks. Interesting “cutting off that ego-other” . . . and yet it feels so full of me . . . to me. 😉 Thank you for sharing your reading. Glad you came by.

      • lesliepaints says:

        I need to explain myself better when I comment. Ego-other is referring to whoever didn’t give you the forgiveness. The way I read it is that the author is finding positive reasons (blue sky) because someone has not offered to forgive him or her. If one doesn’t offer forgiveness, I am assuming a little “ego” might be in that person’s way.

        • Yousei Hime says:

          No problem. I’m just a bit slow today. I like your reading on the poem. You’re absolutely right about the situation (it was years ago). Thanks for helping me understand. I’m a little more awake now. 😉

    This is one of your best ones ever!! Really like this.
    Life can go on and when we are sorry for something, we don’t have to wait around for forgiveness. That’s too controlling.
    You are teaching me so much. Thanks for being here.

If you leave tracks, I'll find you.
