Carpe Diem Special *Shiba Sonome’s “longing for someone”*

This week’ s inspiration on Carpe Diem Special is another haiku, written by Shiba Sonome:

* * *
longing for someone
I sit by the gate and draw
eyebrows on a melon

* * *

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

* * *
ripening plums
I paint my toenails
in his favourite hue

Carpe Diem Special *Shiba Sonome’s “an oak deep in the woods”*

Our source of inspiration on Carpe Diem Special this week is another haiku, written by Shiba Sonome:

* * *
some blossoms there are
that nobody sees—
an oak deep in the woods

* * *

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

* * *
buried deep
in the pile of old photos
her last smile

* * *
