Spring Fades

My response to Carpe Diem Tokubetsudesu #80: Memory Lane: Utabukuro (or poem bag)

 The haiku I admire is:

In the basin,

as I wash my face, there rises

autumn’s shadow.

Natsume Soseki (translated by Makoto Ueda, from Modern Japanese Haiku: An Anthology)

I have written my own haiku in the same style but about spring:

On the washing line,

hanging out towels, spring fades

with drifting blossom
