In the end we are just pilgrims, Marcus, on circuitous, arduous journeys, seeking something, larger than ourselves, something we do not fully comprehend but are still convinced waits at the sunlit end with all the answers.

The path is circular, you know, always leading back to where you started.

Isn’t that the only way we can make sense of the world- if we are both question and answer. Beginning and end. If we are little skies that peel back greys or blues or speckled silver to find the constant nothing.

But what would nothingness mean, unless the sky is constantly changing.

As the pilgrim walks, Marcus, maybe it isn’t the sky that changes, just the way he learns to look at it.

  1. I enjoy your conversations with Marcus, Rajani, and yes, we do seem to be seeking something, larger than ourselves, and who is to say that we don’t find it on that circular path. I love the incanting bee in the haiku.

  2. This is one of the few haibuns I’ve read were the button verse at the end eclipsed the prose which led to it. For me, that’s because you wrote your way so clearly to the leap which in a few words revealed the depths. Good work.

  3. That is funny, I see slight similarities with the American sentence I just finished in your haiku. I loved that philosophy, and it reminds me very much of my all-time favorite film, which ‘revolves’ very closely around the same theme as your work, called ‘Green’ the Rain,’ partly in Macedonian and partly in English. A rare film. https://youtu.be/CXBT06NvWIQ

  4. This is my first time reading your conversation with Markus, I love the tone, the life-infused prose, the promise of a journey full of discovery (or, at least, of very deep searching). The haiku is perfect, especially considering that this is a series. For it feels like it sets the prose on fire, fueling it to grow into more.

    That’s the way of the world – what goes around comes around. Great Thots! Only the brave will impose their will to effect changes they deem fit!
