bees dance
weaving between buzz and hum
drunk with pollen

My response to Carpe Diem Utabukuro #2 solar eclipse August 21st 2017

This weekend we have an Utabukuro episode, in which Chèvrefeuille asks us to share a favourite haiku or tanka and write an all new haiku or tanka inspired by it. My haiku was inspired by:

A bee
staggers out
of the peony.

Matsuo Basho (translated by Robert Hass)
