Carpe Diem Special *Fuyuko Tomita’s “the corner”*

Our inspiration on Carpe Diem Special this week is another haiku, written by a well-known haiku poetess Fuyuko Tomita:

* * *
Under a cold
street lamp
I’ve just turned
the corner

* * *

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

* * *
in the puddle
by cherry blossoms
little piece of blue sky

* * *

Carpe Diem Haiku *Basho ”how rare!”*

Our source of inspiration on Carpe Diem today is a haiku, written by Matsuo Basho:

* * *
how rare!
on leaving the mountain
the first eggplant

* * *

The following ones are my attempt to stay close to the same mood and spirit:

* * *
old oak-tree shade
nurtured in maze of roots
black summer truffle

* * *
double rainbow
arches across stormy sky
time to count blessings

* * *
