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

* * *

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

* * *
