Haibun

  
                                                    April 

All the pastels of spring.  In the sky, in the leaves, in the grass and flowers. The air, washed clean by rain, smells fresh with the richness of wet soil.  Early blustery winds have been gentled into soft breezes.                                                           

                                                cherry blossoms–
                                                remembering the ruffles
                                                on a pink dress

Tanka

 
                                                 blue doors of Naxos
                                                 matching the sea
                                                 matching the sky
                                                 the breeze whispering
                                                 as to what lies behind
