I am tired...

I've gathered Spring blooms,
White heat, petrichor and frost.
I think I'll sleep... yes.

    I dont think that the haiku fits the resting buddha image too well - there is a tranquility and wisdom in the face of the buddha soaked in peace, that your haiku belies. It seems to speak of him on a superficial level of an average human being in need of rest from the vagaries of nature.

  2. Dear P,
    I agree. I simply loved that image and perhaps used it unwisely. The haiku too, is infused with peace, a peace resulting from hard drawn labour ending after a lifetime. It has nothing to do with the vagaries of nature.
