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

* * *
