Red Market ~ Original Haiku

I wrote this about a week or so ago, when the market was first starting to tank.

market's falling...
I think I'll
take a walk

On this day, I opened my portfolio, saw a whole lotta red, stared for a few minutes as I took it all in, then calmly closed my computer and went for a walk.

Some days it just doesn't pay to invest. Or, as the old saying goes Sometimes you get the bear; sometimes the bear gets you.

I wrote this some time during the walk, on one of the notecards I always carry with me.


Hi there! David LaSpina is an American photographer and translator lost in Japan, trying to capture the beauty of this country one photo at a time and searching for the perfect haiku.
