Cherry Blossoms

Carpe Diem Tokubetsudesu #79 Looking Back In Time … “Sparkling Stars”

hana chirite shizuka ni narinu hito-gokoro

the blossoms have fallen:
our minds are now
tranquil

cherry1

even while I sleep
petals scatter magically
making the dawn pink

 

cherry2

 

pink petals scatter
\carried on moonlight and wind
cherry tree left bare

 

cherry3

 

the last petals fall
tranquility flourishes
sleep returns once more

cherry blossom nights
pink skin glowing in moonlight
tranquility fall

to a spiderweb

Waiting for Morning

Carpe Diem # 955 Morning

after midnight
the big dipper empties
over the maple

 

~~~

 

at two a.m.
the evening star balances
on the neighbors roof

 

~~~

 

around five
one bright star high overhead
and tree shadows

before dawn
the clouds fill with light
start of perfect day

 

daybreak.jpg

daybreak
air fills with birdsong
amber orb ablaze

~~~

 

early morning
the smell of fresh cut grass
and a rooster’s crow

 morning heat.jpg

 

morning heat
tulip bows
to the sun
