Carpe Diem On The Trail With Basho Encore *falling willow leaves*

This week on the special feature “Encore” of Carpe Diem our inspiration is a haiku, written by the haiku master Matsuo Basho:

* * *
to sweep the garden
before I leave
falling willow leaves

* * *

I tried not to wander too far from the same mood and spirit in mine:

* * *
empty train station-
the chestnut in my pocket
still warm from his palm

* * *

Carpe Diem Modern Times Haiku *Richard Wright’s “an autumn evening”*

This time on Carpe Diem Modern Times Haiku we are introduced to haiku, written by a haiku poet Richard Wright (1908-1960):

* * *
no birds are flying;
the tree leaves are still as stone, –
an autumn evening

* * *

I tried not to wander too far from the same mood and spirit, writing mine:

* * *
heavy raindrops
running down the dark window pane
a small yellow leaf

* * *
