Happiness in the Quiet Garden

scent of trees

sanctity of leaf shadows

morning sounds

My response to Carpe Diem #1052 Happiness

In this episode, Chèvrefeuille told us about some of the things that made Jane Reichold happy and shared some of her haiku to inspire us:

a great gift
a day on the beach
given to me

curve of a heel
rising with my happiness
waving grass

same style
the blue dress worn more
than the black

summer fresh

my hair washed 
in sunshine

All the above haiku are taken from “A Dictionary of Haiku” a saijiki created by Jane Reichhold with modern kigo (seasonwords). These haiku are from the part of Summer Moods kigo “happiness”.
