all are in a hurry -
in the beggar's hand
only the rain

    Buen trabajo, Jordi.

    gotas gordas—
    modedas en la lata
    del mendigo

    el mendigo
    vuelve a bajar la mano -
    atardecer

    I like the uninvolved simplicity of this. [a tanka of mine:]

    after i pray
    my hands fall open
    like a beggar’s
    at worst the sky
    will give rain

    Beautiful, with a subtle political statement. Thank you for sharing this.

    evening commute--
    in a rush
    white ibis flock
    veers off

    -

    things one sees when traffic slows; specially low flying birds attempting to cross the freeway...

    The picture is so clear yet provides a great opportunity to question our daily lives and activities.

    Really good

    Another one from me

    beggars
    outstretched hands
    trickle down effect
