Haiku in English(2)

Before the rain
The wind dies down―
I compose my thoughts
Dragan J. Ristic, Serbia

■I think this haiku grasps the silent moment in the nature. Generally speaking, we can see some thoughts in our behaviors but not necessarily see some behaviors in our thoughts. His thouhgts could be independant of his behaviors. What thoughts did he start to have?

It is interesting because we are reading his thoughts before he tells us that he is about to compose his thoughts. It is as if we are reading the thoughts that he doesn't know about.

Thanks alot.
Your opinion is very interesting.
As you say, reading this haiku makes us feel like having already known his thoughts he doesn't notice.

What's the thoughts? In a way,they could be beyond time and the distinction between the existent and the non-existent.
