A Chance to Rest

While browsing through the wonderful blog Hazy Moon yesterday night I came upon the following haiku by Matsuo Basho.


Clouds appear
and bring to men
a chance to rest
from looking at the moon

I thought that we all need a break from happiness sometimes. Of course, the most beautiful clouds are those quickly travelling ones that do not hide the moon from our gaze for too long.

Hi Ruslan,

We do need to feel all of our emotions don't we then we really know what happiness is - we have a reference point.

I'm glad you found the Basho to your liking...and thanks for the compliment too my friend...

Happy Days

I like that poem too!
I live the poems that Delwyn has chosen for her blog.

I often think about things like...because there is darkness we can see the light.

By the way I hope Jelica is feeling better!
