Two Small Boats

Mushrooms


two small boats
moored in reflections
of skyscrapers

A flooded paddyfield in southern China gave rise to this haiku. The farmer's huts, his boats, and his family shared their living space with the reflections of skyscrapers in the water.

Thank'ee - the mushrooms make the haiga work, I think. They have a similar feel to the huddled boats and the cosy lives of the farmers.
