I have been going for walks as soon as the sun comes out- these days as it has been rare but it has given me a new appreciation for nature, and even decay. Japanese poets traditionally used haiku to capture and distill a fleeting natural images such as rain falling or a flower bending in the wind. Many people go for walks just to find new inspiration for their poetry, known in Japan as ‘ginkgo walks’. This weeks poem was inspired by David Bowie who left the earthly abode last week.
Fallen leaves, fallen heroes
Float away or stay still, very still
Forever in my heart.
