snow just memory


snow just memory_1snow just memory
as summer rain lightly falls
moon showing through clouds
Mt. Fuji cloudy
summer moon a memory
snow begins to fall

These two fusion haiku are my response to Carpe Diem Crossroads #8 The First Snow (Kanajo), inspired by the words in the following two haiku by Hasegawa Kanajo.

snow just memory_2the first snow
on the Mt. Fuji and the round
cloud flows from there
the sound of rain
the clouds on right-side are
with the summer moon

                    Hasegawa Kanajo
