Carpe Diem Haiku *Shiki “reeds tremble”*

Our source of inspiration on Carpe Diem today is a haiku, written by Masaoka Shiki:

* * *
at the full moon’s
rising, the silver-plumed
reeds tremble
* * *

The following one is my attempt to stay close to the same mood and spirit:

* * *
moonlit window sill
trembling with light brush of fingertips
reed blinds

* * *
