B&P’s Shadorma & Beyond – The ‘Aware’ – Childhood Memories

If the haiku is the understanding of the inner meaning of a moving moment (or a-ha moment) in an event … the haibun answers some of the questions of how one got to that inner meaning of the moving moment. The Japanese  word for this  inner meaning (or a-ha moment is known) as aware (pronounced ah-WAR-ay) or the spirit of the moment or object etc.

We all have them. Our childhood memories – the innocence of youth. The time when we just played or messed around, when we had to go to school or play in the street. When we were free of responsibilities and worries. We remembered our games, our playground, our playmates, the laughter, falling out with some of them but being friends again after 10 minutes and most of all, the fun.

One, two, three, you’re “it”
The innocence of childhood
Youthful memories
