Spring is fading –

Against the tumbledown house

Wisteria weeps.

For Carpe Diem:  a carpet of purple

And here are the two haiku I wrote for the Carpe Diem kukai back in March before the wisteria came into bloom here in the UK.

Bare and twisted,

Amid crowds of crocuses,

Wisteria waits.


March wisteria –

On old, twisted branches hangs
