broken string
my paper kite disappears
in the sun
--Jacek Margolak; POLAND

A deeply disturbing image for the christian soul - "broken string". This subsumes one into a limbo, a hopelessness; and Jacek resonates his theme in this quest of oblivion by choosing to use the word "disappears in Line 2. Disapperance into a scorching inferno, in this case Jacek's haiku 'sun'. An apocalyptic rendering of the Kigo - string, that can cause the faint hearted to swoon, and the neligent believer to take stock, for Lost Lost is the fate of hopelessness; the result of inadequency as tenants in this human earthly scenario. And, as flimsly as Jacek's kite of paper, such is our earthly existence.

What a terribly wonderful canvas from the haiku brush of Jacek Margolak accompanied by the rhythm of his 's' alliteration

Well done Jacek
