Memory of Spring #haiku #photography #poem


a touch of cherry

 

in memory of

the spring now passing
I drew
the long clusters of wisteria
that move like waves

 

© Masaoka Shiki

In cold, grey embers

my fingertips, eager seek

memories

of golden springs long past

nature fragrant songs it sings
