Haibun 80

seeing past all form

looking down the road until it disappears. we got the ‘flat earth theory’ that way you know. then they walked a little further. the road turned. a little further and it got straight. then the mountains appeared. before they knew it an ocean stretched out before them longer than the road ever was. or so it seemed. then they got in a boat and sailed out. three months later there was more land. another path. what we see is not all we know. but if we sit and look. it all comes to us.

the sound of a motorcycle
takes me away
