Joy

Joy gathered alone
never quite fills the basket,
belly, or the heart.

For Haiku Heights

INTERESTING ONE :)

I say, "To hell with haikus," (for me) if this is what kind of haiku YOU come up with, MZ. Remind me to NEVER try to write another haiku, as they would pale, crumple themselves up, and blow away with the wind, when faced with yours.

With only 17 syllables to work with...Wow!

As the noted Zen Master Sum Dum Fuk always said, the haiku is the most noble and beautiful of all poetic forms.

I disagree. :)

So true and completely wonderful with few words. Art.

Leo said...

Joys multiply when shared :) And also when experienced together. Thanks!

Mary said...

You're right, MZ!

So much said in so few words. Truth.

You'll never fit me in a basket--unless it's one of those air balloon ones...but then you'd have to have a gun to my head, and did I say I liked this, because I am tough enough to take haiku straight up, with a senryu chaser.

Love you Haiku, they're always top-notch. Thanks

Everything shared is always better. Nicely done.

Such a lovely verse. It's true about Joy. Joy is better in a pair. :)

True... so true... joy is overwhelming mostly when you can share it!
Window to the other side
Do and think not.. Think, then do!

Can joy be gathered alone? Isn't that an oxymoron?
