Selected Haiku: Milky Way Haiku

Milky Way…
bit by bit I  put myself
out of  my mind

Haiku News, July, 18, 2010

Comment by Jack Galmitz: A first rate haiku. The contrast between the hugeness of the Milky Way and the “bits” that compose our idea of self is well-illustrated. And, I like the gradual loss of self as it contemplates what is itself and beyond itself.
