The moon is humble

Carpe Diem Special #127, Sogi’s third ”dewy evening”.

Both grasses and trees
waiting for the moon
dewy evening

HAIKU

dew glisten meadow
swaying in a last dance
the moon is humble

TROIKU

dew glisten meadow
grass and flowers sing refrain
end verse is waiting

swaying in a last dance
softly kissing the sweetheart
farewell is near

the moon is humble
a scene of nature romance
eyes closed by stars

A bench is empty

Carpe Diem Special #122, Richard Wright’s 3rd haiku.

I give permission
For this slow spring rain to soak
The violet beds.

playing in the fresh puddles

My TROIKU:

I give permission
for any child to enter
life school of today

For this slow spring rain to soak
every sad story behind
shine a happy day

The violet beds
lack a lavender pillow
Flooding in sunset

My HAIKU:

Spring rolly ground
some girls are playing hopscotch
the bench is empty
