"Why Can't I Be Different and Original . . . Like Everybody Else?" - Viv Stanshall
I like your ryokan haiku !I made a LINK for my friends to find you.SHOKAI Enjoy your Zen and Haiku life !GABI from Japanwith more about Ryookan here:. DARUMA Museum, Japan .
Hello, i was watching a show "Heroes" and a character said this HaikuThe theif left it behindthe moon at my windoweven if everything else is lostwe will always have our loveNo theif, No illness...can ever take that away.Does anyone know who it is by?
I would guess it is merely Hollywood's take on the original words. In essence the thief left many things like love, happiness, but people would not understand the entire concept, much less the few words of the poem, so the writers probably decided to expound so the audience would get it more clearly. They are masters of making much from nothing; the word "hello" can become a series for them, using not many more words but when needed, they can use too many. Look at your source. It is a TV show made for profit, created by Hollywood, and someone (like me) knew the poem but had to give it context and explanation.
Bingo, Hollywood will "correct" and "improve" what the masters wrote hundreds of years ago.
Or perhaps just adapt to present times and cultural context, to facilitate readers' comprehension…
