Life is Free - Haibun

The prompt for Haibun Monday on dVerse is 'The Best Things in Life are Free'

To begin with, Life is Free. It is only when one experiences the passing away of a loved one that one truly realizes this truth. 'Life and death' is all around us. It is just that, in my experience, we become immune to feeling the unpredictability of our existence.

  1. Life indeed is free, a gift given, and maybe at the end I will see my death the same.

  2. I agree that we become immune to feeling the unpredictability of our existence. I also like "final touchdown" in the haiku.

  3. Having reached advanced years and seeing my friends pass into the great what-comes-after, I have an enhanced appreciation for the gift of life, and an increased ability to see the things that really matter. Your haiku is a reminder we all need to enjoy the flight until final touchdown! Lovely thought.

  5. Very good haibun and excellent haiku. I have not become immune to the unpredictability of life for one, and I am sure there are others. I can't imagine.
