Preoccupied

PREOCCUPIED

Absentmindedly
Walked by this springtime river
And missed the whole thing

About Ben Naga

  2. I relate personally–it was a dozen years before I saw the glorious cherry tree that bloomed each spring, right in my daily path. It took God’s touch, the scales falling from my eyes–and now I eagerly await it each year. Great haiku.

  3. It happens. I read a page and missed what I just read. Perfect interpretation.

  4. We all get distracted at times… just don’t let it be for too long.
