Carpe Diem Sparkling Stars #23 Soseki’s “gingko leaves are falling”


over the wintry
forest, winds howl in rage
with no leaves to blow

five-tired waterfall –
on each tire there are
red maple leaves                                              ©  Natsume Soseki


(couldn’t find my ginkgo photos)

autumn afternoon
ginkgo leaves flutter softly
gilding the landscape
