Carpe Diem Haiku Special *Alexey Andreyev’s “Morning Awakening”*

This week our inspiration on Carpe Diem Special is another haiku, written by Alexey Andreyev (Алексей Андреев):

* * *
morning awakening:
among window curtains’ flowers
a blade of gray sky

* * *

The following one is mine, where I tried to stay close to the same mood and spirit:

* * *
tea ceremony
among cherry blossom kimonos
glimpse of pale wrist

in empty champagne flute
aurora

Carpe Diem Haiku Special *Alexey Andreyev’ s “First Snowflakes”*

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

* * *
first snowflakes!
I love them too much to think
they’ll melt by noon

* * *

I am following with mine, trying to stay close to the same mood and spirit:

* * *
first raindrops
taste still lingers on my lips
after storm is gone

* * *
verdant buds
succumbing to warm caresses
petals burst wide open

* * *

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
