A brown leaf

Flutters back on the bough –

Perching sparrow.

For Carpe Diem, where the task was to write a riddle haiku. I’ve adapted one of my earliest haiku.

The wind stills –

A snowstorm suspended

On white cherry trees.

For Carpe Diem: White Blossoms

A felled beech

Overgrown with moss

Ever green.

For Carpe Diem: buried in moss

Blown from the tree

A pair of cherry blossoms

Falls together.

For Carpe Diem: Weatherbeaten

Five pm –

I emerge into sunlight

And cherry blossom.

Pink clouds –

Cherry blossoms await

The sunset.

Does the tree know

How lovely its blossoms

Are to the bees?

Magnolia cups

Refreshing the traveller

With spilled perfume.

For Carpe Diem: perfume.

On the page

A cherry blossom lands –

Wisdom flowering.

For Carpe Diem: Wisdom

Blossoming

Among cherry branches

Bird song.
