blossoms colorized 1

splintered
by your indifference
i grew slightly crooked –
now my perfume clings to you 
as plum blossoms in winter

Heeding Haiku with Chevrefeuille

Inspired by Chiyo-Ni:

the flowering branch of the plum
gives its scent
to him who broke it off

I‌ could not emulate her style or rewrite her haiku with any skill, so I opted to develop her message into a tanka.
