Carpe Diem Special *Sogi’s “Butterfly home“*

This week’ s inspiration on Carpe Diem Special is another haiku, written by a pre-Basho haiku poet Iio Sogi (1421-1502) and translated by our Carpe Diem Haiku host Chèvrefeuille:

* * *
abandoned house
the garden taken over –
butterfly home

* * *

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

* * *
old diary
wind pages through memories
in smouldering ruins
