to live life with passion and colour to the end of my days…to nurture lightness, curiosity, generosity, playfulness, endeavour…fortunate are those who retain a well of stamina in their elder years…
may a youthful spirit dwell in denial? perhaps, yet to tread nowhere or somewhere in this moment is a choice…a choice to thrive until the end.
a rainbow of light
flames rich autumn splendour—
the sun slips away
In Carpe Diem #1410 Rainbow, Chevrefeuille asks us to write a short haibun (100 words or less) using this haiku by Issa or a revision of it:
evening’s fall colors –
the rainbow in the valley
© Kobayashi Issa (1763-1828)
‘Issa’ is a pen-name meaning ‘cup of tea’…the autumn photo is from Pixabay.com.
