Carpe Diem Haiku *Yanagi chiru (Willow leaves fall)*

Today’ s Carpe Diem prompt brought back in memory another haiku I have read quite some time ago. Not about willow leaves but of the same spirit – a beauty I couldn’t resist including in this post:

how enviable –
turning beautiful then falling
maple leaves
/Kagami Shiko (1665-1731)/

* * *
caressed by the sun
twirling willow leaves in the air
year grows older
