Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille August 19 th 2015 “use that quote”

[…] “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop”.[…]

toro-toro to shiriyake chidori mata doko e

slowly, slowly
plover with burnt tail feathers
where to now?

© Kobayashi Issa (tr. David G. Lanoue)


you’ll reach there
meander for a while
enjoy what’s between

don’t stop, keep going
leisurely doing things
as long as you’re happy
