creek crossing
around a doe’s step
water blossoms

There’s a treat at the end of this post!

Linked to Carpe Diem Time Glass #31, where we had 18 hours to write a haiku inspired by this haiku and the image provided by our host.  

mazu iwae ume o kokoro no fuyu-gomeri

first celebrate
the flowers in your heart
confined in winter

Basho
(Tr. Jane Reichhold)

Here is our host’s response:

grateful
first cherry blossom
in the moonlight

The elusive spirit of the woodlands


Wrong part of the world, but this song came to mind upon seeing her cross the creek.

  1. Well!! That photo just makes me smile and smile – but then you knew it would. Just wonderful 😀

    You know, without wanting to sound too hippyish (whilst sounding ultra hippyish, of course), don’t you ever wonder if animals do sense a kind of aura attached to us? “Nope, this nice lady wouldn’t dream of upsetting me – guess, I’ll just dawdle across the creek…” 😉

    And your haiku does justice to the beauty of the situation in fine style. The swirls of water around a doe’s footsteps – talk about capturing the ‘haiku moment’!

    • I’m so glad you liked the photo — and that it made you smile! [I was beaming from ear to ear of course!]
      Very glad you enjoyed the haiku moment too. 🙂

      Yes, I do think they can sense ‘auras’ or *something* in us. She was watchful-but-unafraid – just as curious about me as I was about her! And when it was time for her to move on she took her time. She knew!

        • Guess what? I saw her again yesterday! It was awesome!
          She is amazing. [sighhhh…..!!!!]

          I absolutely adore this beautiful creature. And I’m glad to share whatever moments I can with her! 😀

        • Well, somehow you must have made a very positive impression – she seems to be loving her ‘Jen time’! After all, it must be so easy for her to avoid you if she chose.

          You don’t mind if I add a little sigh of my own…? 🙂
