I don’t buy him

 

Today’s prompt was “buddha” and  I found out that the prompts come from a quote! Michael Dylan Welch used a quote from R. H. Blyth for inspiration: “Haiku is a hand beckoning, a door half-opened, a mirror wiped clean. It is a way of returning to nature, to our moon nature, our cherry blossom nature, our falling leaf nature, in short, to our Buddha nature.” That’s why a few of the prompts have been repeated. This is one of Welch’s favourite quotations from Blyth about haiku. Learn more on the NaHaiWriMo Facebook page.

You can follow me on Instagram and Twitter and Facebook. You can find other haiku poets on those sites as well.

A quote from Buddha

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.
 -Buddha

There is always something to be thankful for.

I almost did a Thanksgiving post, but then decided to spend the day focusing on family instead. But I plan to do holiday posts in the future.
