Today we are looking at the first line of the Latifa Prayer, 'I exist'.  What is its meaning and relation to haiku?  I suggest you read the full post here.  Learning as much as everyone on this journey.

my response or journey
i exist
Ever wonder at what point self awareness happens?  Is it in the womb?  Or when we take our first independent breath?  The first infant cry of discomfort could be the moment.  But who knows!  I surely do not remember my first moment of that awareness.  Whenever it was it was certainly the beginning of the journey.  Many years of childhood are spent gaining the experiences of 'i exist'.  Think of the delight of a child bursting bubbles, "I exist and that exists.  I'll touch it and it no longer exists. "  That surprised look is the moment we discover our existence has an influence on others.  

i exist
is it me or the great
I am?
