30. Jan. 1970
Stay awake and be
Like an over sunned flower
Dried up all over.
|Washington and Glasgow Streets, Olde Towne Portsmouth, VA --"Be, a haiku"|
This Haiku was written on the 18th of July 1998. The accompanying photo was taken in Olde Towne Portsmouth, Virginia.
This poem is about the state of being. Enjoying the sun, staying awake and drying up are states of being. The final line is the result of attachment to the state of being. It's a poem about Buddha mind. Buddho is the awakened mind.
