TJ’s Haiku Challenge – Bud

blossoms2 blossoms

stars of spring
flower buds begin to peek
hundreds of white blooms

petals with silky hearts
flutter down as gentle rain
blossoms are here

each one beautiful
snowdrop, crocus, daffodils
canvas of nature

fragrance of flowers
air of spring brings health and life
rain comes on the wind

spring is here
birds fly from there to here
winter bids adieu

Carpe Diem #1050 blossoms


I will be with you
this year’s apple blossom time
we’ll be together

ephemeral time
apple blossom at its best
relish its moment

as the blossoms fell
the wind blows them to the field
my spirit soars

pure and innocent
angel of cherry blossoms
her smile lifts the air

enjoy the blossoms
experience flowers’ splendour
they don’t last that long

Carpe Diem Tokubetsudesu #78 Soliloquy no Renga “sutumn night” by Santoka Taneda

Aki noyo ya inu kara morattari neko ni ataetari

Autumn night–
I received it from the dog
And gave it to the cat.

© Santoka Taneda

The dog licked his bone
The cat purred all night

Early spring
Tortoises in the garden
Eating dandelions

Birds building their nests
The birdhouse is popular

The height of spring
All the blossoms of the apple
Such a delight to see

Rain and sun alternating
Plants are swaying to say thanks
