reflection creating
fantasy grotto

winter dusk
sunset bleeds
across the snow
hanging icicles reflect
fading colors

drip, drip, drip
icicles on eves
creating puddles

sprouting icicles
stretching toward the azure sky
patch of meadow weeds

Troiku Hineri – Apple Blossoms

Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #67 Troiku Hineri: Apple Blossoms

light carried in my arms
apple blossoms from a neighbor
on my doorstep

clusters talking
together in admiration
apple blossoms

sun transformed
into apple blossoms
the ground is level

the dam is broken
spring cascades into valleys
as apple blossoms

“fusion-ku”

my doorstep adorned
cascading apple blossoms
dance in the sunlight

 “Troiku Hineri”

my doorstep adorned
cascading apple blossoms
dance in the sunlight

my doorstep adorned
my feet bathed in pink petals
kissed in softness

cascading apple blossoms
alight on my shoulder
spreading perfume

dance in the sunlight
partnered with the breeze
twirling dizzily

my doorstep adorned
sunlight and blossoms
waltz into the house

my feet bathed in pink petals
scattered with each bouncing step
emotions surge

kissed in softness
dapple light shadows
chase away winter

cascading apple blossoms
shower the bare garden
in hues of pink

alight on my shoulder
spirits of the springtime
carry me forward

spreading perfume
the breeze tickles my senses
floating along

dance in the sunlight
warmth bathing my soul
tears of joy

partnered with the breeze
hair flying wildly
racing toward your arms

twirling dizzily
your embraces dispels
ache of your absence

Moonlight

Carpe Diem #1580 moonlight (modern kigo, extracted from “A Dictionary of Haiku”)

winter moon’s pale light
my dreams pierced with coldness
I walk alone

winter moon’s pale light
encompasses the maple
in silvery gown

my dreams pierced with coldness
shadowy figures roam
passing through me

I walk alone
unable to make contact
with the past

 

 

Bonfire

Carpe Diem #1579 bonfire (takibi)

fading sunset
scent of woodsmoke
scents the air

frosty evening
sledding down the hull
wind whipping
someone throws an old tire
in the bonfire

 

 

Fuyukasumi (or Winter Mist)

winter mist settles
weighting the new year
with a touch of blues

Untitled-2

winter mist rises
shadowy figures emerge
creating a forest

scattered scraps on rug
my grandson’s face glowing
first paper snowflakes

snow frosted windows
I wipe fresh nose prints away
watching children play
