Hatsu Hana (The First Cherry Blossom) - October 9, 2014

Continuing along memory lane today's Carpe Diem Haiku Kai post brings back a prompt from March 2013: Cherry Blossom or Hatsu Hana - a classical spring time kigo.

cherry blossoms sway
in the early morning breeze
bees hum

the first cherry bloom
harbinger of a pink sea
perfuming the lane

tiny cherry buds
open under the warm sun
defying winter

(c) G.s.k. '14


  1. really liking the image of the pink sea, Georgia -- it certainly feels like that when you have masses in bloom, caught in a spring breeze :)

    1. Or a beautiful rain of blossoms ... warm colored snow flakes? Thanks Jen .. I'm glad you enjoyed the post!

  2. Anything that defies winter wins my admiration!


harmonious words ... like crystal clear water ... pure ectasy
