Wintersweet roobai

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


evening sunshine -
a wintersweet glows
on a bare branch








wintersweet -
looking for a right
on the wrong side

Dear Gabi san

I went to your link and saw roobai san's haiku... it is beautiful
and touches a little humor in my heart... Does roobai san
meant "light" or "right"? It is good to contrast "right"
with "wrong", but, it would be interesting if it is the trick of
the "l" in English.

Sometimes, these silly things come into my mind, to think and
hear "clouds" meaning "crowds" and "light" meaning "right"
and "collect" meaning "correct".
