MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU: ECHOES 75

MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU: ECHOES 75

 

 

(1)

 

Kan commented on Echoes 74 thus:

 

Chi, essence of life

Pervades tissue and sinew

Man lives unaware

 

(2)

My response is:

 

vapour from steamed rice

flow along without trying

no ego to know

 

 

NB

Qi is composed of two radicals in Chinese pictograph: the upper triad lines represent flow of vapour; the lower with rice confined to a vessel.
