scent and color pale – after the storm

Carpe Diem Weekend-Meditation #24 Revise That Haiku
offers two classic haiku: 

in the moonlight,
the color and scent of the wisteria
seems far away
                         Yosa Buson (1716-1784)
~~~~~
a mountain village
under the piled-up snow
the sound of water
                         Masaoka Shiki (1867-1902)

My revisions:

scent and color pale
wisteria in moonlight
haunting in absence

after winter storm

after winter storm
mountain village recovers
heavy snow melting

  1. Nice to see you over a pure haiku – I’ve known Freya for many years.
    I remember when Freya started pure haiku! 🙂

    I like how haiku can say so much with so few words. Simple breath, complex emotions.
