Take this re-trod trip;
We have all been here before.
The grass grows again.
I will pause again here to talk about the ring composition that is happening with this collection of haiku. Today’s haiku is actually part of three circles: a month-ring and two different year-rings, one circular and one parabolic or pedimental. First it will eventually speak across the month-ring to a haiku that will later appear on July 18. As part of its annual-ring, it speaks across the year-ring to January 3 (“Walkabout”) both which, ironically, speak to the circular path of time. This haiku also speaks the short distant across the parabola of the year to its mirrored haiku on June 28 (“Nothing Is New”).
This is not meant to be a singular occurrence but rather this goes on each day with each haiku like the slowly-turning gears in the grand clock of Time.
