I wonder what associations cyclamen has for the Japanese reader. If only I could speak Japanese...This haiku does not move me as much as the spring butterfly. Perhaps if I understood the associations.
Interesting haiga, with a lot of open space for questions, such as---Are the flowers a bouquet sent ahead the visit? or are they bein used to lively up the place for the visitor's coming?much lovegillena
Dear upinVermont san thank you for your comment.I have a questioon.What does it mean by "associations"?sakuo.
Gillena san, thank you for good comment.The white space has caused many questions and imagination.I image that Masajyo,the woman poet is longing for him as like cyclamen that blooms like red fire.sakuo.
Dear Sakuo,Feel free to call me Patrick or, my poet-nickname, Bottlecap.Associations:What does the Japanese reader think when she thinks about the cyclamen? When the American reader thinks of Roses, she thinks of love. When the American reader thinks of Dandelions, she thinks of spring and children.These are associations.
Thank you Patrick san for your kind reply.As I said at the comment reply to Gillena san,I image that Masajyo,the woman poet is longing for him as like cyclamen that blooms like red fire.Cyclamen is the symbole of the woman poet's pasion.sakuo.
