Carpe Diem Haiku Special *Alexey Andreyev’s “Evening Sky”*

Today on Carpe Diem Special our inspiration is a haiku by Alexey Andreyev (Алексей Андреев):

* * *

evening sky –
over the city lights
stars hardly seen

* * *

I am following with my own, keeping them of the same mood and spirit (hopefully!) and also refreshing my Russian:

* * *

     cherry blossoms                                                                  вишни в цвету
 during the daily rush                                                 в повседневной суете
          unnoticed                                                                              не замечены

                                                                           * * *
     your silhouette                                                                       твой силуэт
 in the crowded city                                                           в толкотне города
appears, disappears                                                      появляется, исчезает

      Russian…yes, I am one of the many ex USSR children for whom Russian was obligatory at school (and I am glad it was!) for many years.


Plato believed an opinion is the medium between knowledge and ignorance. Fancy to share yours?
