Let go (Haibun)
A roaring event rips lives apart. Like a river that parts land into two banks. Sometimes brothers are rent apart by life, never to be joined again. Nations arise out of land that was once one.
Born of the same soil, yet separated by the rapid gusts of flowing water. At the culmination though, love breaks barriers. At the ocean, the roar of the river is drowned in the peace of the wave.
Sometimes, we must let go and let life mend itself.
When the river meets
the ocean, sands from two banks
mingle, become one
