Spliced In - Day 11

...Kenneth Yashuda asserts that a haiku is a poem that: Arises from "the haiku attitude [which] is a readiness for an experience for its own sake." Expresses "a haiku moment" whose "quality is eternal, for in this state, man and his environment are one unified whole, in which there is no sense of time"...

Empty nest —
a chipped blue cup
of bitter tea

Good sets...especially liked the haiga, Gillena :)

that essay i've read earlier...from being in the moment to the experiencing the unified whole, in which there is no sense of time -- that's so true :)
