On days when big clouds
Are flying by in the sky –
I feel the world turn –
Forward or backward depends
On the day and way I look

Notes to this poem…

I LOVE days when big clouds in the sky are flying by. The that relative movement always makes it feel like I can feel the world turning . As for which way, it depends on the way the clouds are moving with respect to me. Usually left to right and front to back feels like the world is spinning clockwise and in the “right” direction. Otherwise, it feels a bit “wrong” somehow, and that things are going to be a bit against me today.

The H-series poems comprise of haiku composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Haiku collection.
