Carpe Diem Haiku *Buson “a glimpse of dawn”*

Our source of inspiration on Carpe Diem today is Yosa Buson’ s very last haiku (his  Jisei):

* * *
the night almost past
through the white plum blossoms
a glimpse of dawn

* * *

I wrote mine, trying to stay close to the same mood and spirit:

* * *
fleeting silhouette
in the end of empty street
just the light of lantern

* * *

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge *Sho-u “spring in our country”*

This week Carpe Diem Tan Renga inspiration is a beautiful haiku by a poet Sho-u. Our goal is to add a second stanza to it.

in the centre,
mount Fuji towers up:
                                    spring in our country                     (Sho-u)

on geisha’ s ivory cheeks
                    glimpse of first cherry blossoms         (Ese)

Carpe Diem Haiku *Chiyo-Ni ”waterweed”*

A haiku, written by Chiyo-Ni, was my source of inspiration on Carpe Diem today:

* * *
floating away, despite
the butterfly’s weight on it

* * *
The following haiku is my attempt not to stay close to the same mood and spirit:

* * *
despite gust of wind
little yellow leaf still shivers
between bare branches

* * *
