Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome a the second episode of our Theme Week about that wonderful and powerful Latifa Prayer. Today I will introduce to you the first "line" of this prayer, "I exist".
eyes closed in devotion -
Lotus starts to bloom
But as we take a look at the Latifa Prayer's first line than maybe we see something different in it.
As we look at "I exist" in that way I think the spiritual layer of the Latifa Prayer fits us haiku poets like a glove. To create our haiku we need to understand that we exist and that we are part of nature, we are not nature's superior, but we are its friend and caregiver.
Nature is the base of our wonderful haiku ... so in a way ... I exist is the base for our haiku too.
Lotuses dance too
