I Am Nothing

Old hunter lifts head,
shattered lives lay at his feet.
Tears roll down his cheek.

Thank you Talicia..it can certainly be taken that way..but that is not why I wrote it. For me it was a liberation from a life of misdeeds..a recognition that he had wronged..and having seen that..changed. One of the lives that lays at his feet..the main one..is his own..his past life. He has seen that his previous life is dead..and amounts to nothing..and this why, in that moment of insight..he sees he is nothing..and in many spiritual practice..this is the ultimate. I am still learning haiku but what I love about them is that when you peer into them you see a reflection of your own state. They simply do not give enough information to do otherwise. You were no more wrong in your comment..than I am right in mine. Thank you.
