Millionaire

nature’s lottery
a dandelion’s golden face
in a field of weeds

My response to Carpe Diem #1267 millionaire

The prompt for today points comes from a haiku by Yosa Buson (1716-1784):

enjoying three bowls of Zoni *
at the New Year’s breakfast
millionaire as he is!

(c) Yosa Buson

* ‘Zoni’ is a soup containing mochi (rice cakes), vegetables and other ingredients. To cook zoni was very expensive for the common people in the Edo period (1603-1868). To eat three bowls of ‘zoni’ at a time for breakfast was beyond all imagination of theirs.
