8/14/10 – poem, found haiku (last one)

Apparently I’ve worried some of you, with my sorrowful choices of found poetry this week.   I surmise it has come from the same sensibility we use when we choose to ride a roller coaster or watch a slasher film – letting out the fear, the fright, when we are in fact safe.  With an angioplasty the odds of a fatal heart attack or stroke on the table are like 1 in 4,000, of such a non-fatal reaction, like 1 in 2,000.

Here, then, is my last “found” haiku from Nichiren on the transience of life – even Buddhas can snark…

blossoms turn into fruit
and brides
become mothers-in-law
