white sand
a child asks why
I'm wearing shoes
(Shiki Kukai, June 2008)

and why did you?...

with a smile,

p.s.: a good haiku!

children are near to the nature, are open...we, the adults, know more, have more experiences with this and that...but at the same time we lost so much...

Angelika, Vaughn, Gian, Polona, I appreciate those responses.
Maybe that was my inner child talking.

Theres so much to think of about this one. Mostly I'm falling into the childs mind, wondering what they were wondering.

A good story;
first your interesting haiku,
and after that this conversation.

If there is an answer,
probably someone
made a question.

(But not necessarily?)
