the cherry blossoms dance through the streets
in praise of the Creator

grass ruffles and bends
violets quiver

carried on the spring wind
rousing moonlight

tickles flowering clusters
on the maple tree

walking by ponds edge
loud splash of a frog jumping
both of us startled

Basho’s old pond
long since silenced
sound only memory

 

 

 

 

Unmelted Snow

Carpe Diem #1187 unmelted snow (yuki no hate / zansetsu)

unmelted snow
weights the jonquil’s head
early spring

~~~

 

spring crocus
breaking through
unmelted snow

snowrose 

head bowed
beneath unmelted snow
early rose

last years flowers
encased in frozen tomb
longing for the sun

the wind blows the curtain
stirring memories

morning mist
wraps the day
in emptiness

 

 

Heartbreak

Carpe Diem #1181 broken heart

 Flower Natural Pink Nature Bleeding Heart

trimming the rose bush
planted our first summer
still missing you

~~~

a prick of a thorn
drawing a drop of blood
reopening wounds

~~~

petals unfold
heartache lessens
day by day

A Drop of Rain

Carpe Diem #1182 drop of rain

by itself
a single drop is just a drop
together a storm

2017-03-03-16-53-05

a drop of water
reflecting on itself
all its world

2017-02-25-06-56-40.jpg

reflected
in a single drop of water
perfect ecosphere
