of the shad fly
Issue 16.2 | 19 September 2016
A brief life
But an endless horizon
So much up drifting good energy in this ku!
Graphic and uplifting. To be read again and again.
Very beautiful, Marianne.
Yes! Thank you, Marianne, this is lovely!
Yes, a gorgeous haiku !
I love the occasional high register word in haiku. I have a couple up my sleeve too. :-)
"ascension" is a wonderfully mellifluous choice!
Your haiku is then beautifully 'grounded' with naming the type of fly:
The shad fly is deeply embedded in culture and a very haiku subject due to its fleeting transience akin to cherry blossom.
"The name shadfly is from the Atlantic fish the shad, which runs up American East Coast rivers at the same time as many mayflies emerge."
So simple and wonderful
I love it, Marianne! :)
