Carpe Diem Special *Sogi’s “Life In This World“*

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

* * *
life in this world
just like a temporary shelter
from a winter shower

* * *

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

* * *
last ray of sunlight
embraced by the horizon
yet another day

* * *
