spring rain

young leaves give shelter

tender buds

first snow fall
sparrows wait in pine trees
until blue sky returns

full circle

Carpe Diem Tokubetsudesu #84 Back in Time
“Carpe Diem full circle”

I

summer shower
princess gems left behind
droplets on willow

II

desert oasis
only palm trees cast shadows
relief for camels

III

silent cruise ship
ocean foams white like snow
rainbow follows

IV

yellow fluttering
in lines above the shrine
prayer flags
