Carpe Diem Special *Sogi’s “With Cherry Blossoms“*

This week our inspiration on Carpe Diem Special is a haiku, written by a pre-Basho haiku poet Iio Sogi (1421-1502):

* * *
Now that they end
There is no flower that can compare
With cherry blossoms

* * *

Here’ s my attempt to stay close to the same mood and spirit:

* * *
first cherry blossoms
despite the bites of morning frost
still beautiful

* * *
left behind
in the frozen pond
white feather

* * *

Art Of Tomorrow

During the last years I have been lucky enough to have a possibility to enjoy quite a lot of art created by children and it has always fascinated me. Their creativity and imagination, need and wish to explore and experiment, their beautiful open minds…  As you can see, I couldn’ t resist sharing a bit from what has been created by 6 year old artists.
