summer noon
all the expectations
I let go

Comment: a haiku set in an unspecified summer context (natsu 夏) in which the poet is alone with hes own thoughts. Daylight has just reached its peak (shōgo 正午), while the author’s expectations and desires seem to have suffered a rough blow. Maybe, the umpteenth disappointment has permanently disillusioned her; or maybe yet, she just realized that the time of decision-making has finally come: she now has to get her priorities right by abandoning useless or unattainable thoughts and projects and focusing on what really matters to her. In fact, the verb ‘let go’ in line 3 clearly indicates an action that respects the natural order of things and not something that forces events.
