Rain on the Mountain

veiling the mountain
rainclouds gather at the peak
a fresh spring shower

My response to Carpe Diem honors Jane Reichhold (1937-2017) E.) Fuji No Yama

In a new episode of our special Theme Week, Chèvrefeuille has shared more of Jane’s writing to inspire us. This time we have a few spring haiku from her book A Dictionary of Haiku, a modern saijiki:

morning breeze
coming in the window
surf sounds

changing forms
all around the Buddha
clouds in a blue sky

flooding the river
with spring

spring cloud melt
flooding river willows
green leaves

cherry blossoms bloom
in praise of the gods
