Arranging the plum,,

Arranging the plum,,

Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille January 20th 2016 “revise” that haiku

umi ikete tsuki to mo wabin tomoshikage

arranging the plum-flowers,
I would enjoy them in the light of the lamp,
as if in the moonlight

© Taigi (1709-1771 ?)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

left over daisies
gathered from the market place
I light a candle for sun

~~~

arranging dried flowers
shadows cast by moonlight dance
swaying like summer fields

~~~

one cold plum
not much to share
this winter evening
