It would be surprising if you say you find peace in this haiku.

Halfway across the world
The sound of the waves lapping at the shore
Is just the same.

Not at all. I just derive a different meaning than you do.

Try explaining what you are referring to, if you can. That would help show that dialogue with you is not a complete waste of time

I don't know if that little verse brings peace or something else.

I was sitting on a beach in Malaga, Spain just two days ago, watching my students play in the water. Then I closed my eyes and heard the waves. Memories of the sound of the waves in Melbourne, Australia flooded in, the bitter feelings of separation from the place I called home and especially from the Bay, which I loved so much. But with my eyes closed, the waves sounded just the same - no way to really know whether I was in Malaga or Melbourne, except thoughts. And for a brief moment, I was back in Port Phillip Bay.

Appreciate your explaining.

Just moved from Virginia to Florida in June. New home, same furniture. Thankfully, same dog to keep me company!

"Then, Bahiya, you should train yourself thus: In reference to the seen, there will be only the seen. In reference to the heard, only the heard. In reference to the sensed, only the sensed. In reference to the cognized, only the cognized. That is how your should train yourself. When for you there will be only the seen in reference to the seen, only the heard in reference to the heard, only the sensed in reference to the sensed, only the cognized in reference to the cognized, then, Bahiya, there is no you in terms of that. When there is no you in terms of that, there is no you there. When there is no you there, you are neither here nor yonder nor between the two. This, just this, is the end of stress."

In the cherry blossom's shade
there's no such thing
as a stranger.

Any cherry blossom haiku is welcome!

One cherry blossom
Offers very little shade.
An ant, or two maybe ...

It is interesting that how we affect our lives.
In the past few days I've focus on this sentence.
