(Jorio/ Joria haibun)
garden gates’ ajar…
the nature park was
open… so we played
in, around, up, down
until over and …out
an active morning
leads to a long renewing
rest for both of us
next time, I’ll leave
an hour later – since
the hours changed and
the museum wasn’t open

or of how I might put the inspirational sentence
into practice, for me. Also, I am going in my own order.
