Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's a long time ago that we had a distillation challenge, but I was on a roll today, so I thought to make another episode of this special feature Distillation. In this special feature the goal is to 'distil' a haiku from a long-poem.
For this episode of Distillation I have chosen a poem by Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) titled 'Lotus'. Tagore has written a lot of poems and was adored by a lot of people, not only for his poems, but also for his spiritual thoughts.
Here is the poem which you have to distil a haiku from:
and I knew it not. My basket was empty and the flower remained unheeded.
