RDP Sunday — WANDER

Our prompt word this morning is WANDER

Reading a book of haiku poems one day, I was touched by the sense of loss woven into this verse written by Japanese poet Chiyo-ni (1703 – 1775) after her son’s death.

dragonfly searching
son, how far will we wander
today and next day

Haiku poet Alan Summers has given this translation from the original Japanese.
Another translation renders the first line as “my little dragonfly hunter.”
