around a doe’s step
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
the flowers in your heart
confined in winter
(Tr. Jane Reichhold)
Here is our host’s response:
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.
