Blossom Haze

obscured by pink haze
the bridge echoes with footsteps
lovers’ rendezvous

My response to Carpe Diem #1639 blossom haze (hanagumori)

 Today we have another classical kigo to work with, which is ‘blossom haze’ (hanagumori); it is used as a kigo for late spring and never used for other flowers in haze or clouds. We have two examples:

hanagumori miyako so sumi no Asukayama

blossom haze –
in a corner of the capital
is Asukayama

Masaoka Shiki

tenpura ni kagiru sakana ya hanagumori

this fish is best
as Tempura . . .
cherry blossom haze
