Ancient – Daily Prompt


Ifugao people
blood and sweat used for this road
they used ancient tools

magnificent sight
primeval rice terraces
such a heritage


the ancient woman
cherry tree blooms in old age
an event to remember
© Basho (at the age of 21)

memories of glorious past
happy to leave legacy

the ancient woman
every year she blossoms
such tenacity

loves being appreciated
growing old elegantly
