March wind –
following the waves of my hair
heartward

 ◊

Linked to Carpe Diem Haiku Shuukan, where we are following Paulo Coelho’s “Way of the Bow”. Here is the passage providing our inspiration for this week:

[…] When the archer draws the bow-string, he can see the whole world in his bow.

When he follows the flight of the arrow, that world grows closer to him, caresses him and gives him a perfect sense of duty fulfilled.

Each arrow flies differently. You can shoot a thousand arrows and each one will follow a different trajectory: that is the way of the bow. […]

And here is our host’s haiku:

follow the arrow
all its different paths –
everlasting life

I chose to follow the thousand paths 🙂

  1. I think this is the panting that is used in a modern version of Cinderella where Leonardo helps the heroine…

    Fingers like little arrows combing the hair out of our March tussled hair… lovely.

  2. I love this poem Jen, there is something very sweet about it and I love the painting as well. This isn’t one I was familiar with as it’s very different that what Van Gogh normally paints…excellent.

    • Whoops! Good thing you commented on that! It’s a Da Vinci, not a Van Gogh — my brain got befuddled because I almost used a Van Gogh originally. Sorry about that! :O

      I’m glad you liked the haiku though 🙂
