Winter Reflections

tinkling icicles
an icy wind brings more snow
whistling in chimneys

daybreak memories
bright sunflowers and cornfields
smell of morning toast

My response to Carpe Diem Weekend-Meditation #24 Revise That Haiku … Improve your haiku writing skills

This weekend our challenge is to revise two classical haiku by well-known haiku poets Yosa Buson and Masaoka Shiki:

in the moonlight,
the color and scent of the wisteria
seems far away

© Yosa Buson (1716-1784)


a mountain village
under the piled-up snow
the sound of water

© Masaoka Shiki (1867-1902)

I decided to change the order in my revision.
