Tranquility

morning pollen’s trapped
in tranquility of dew
golden mist rises

My response to Carpe Diem #1638 (delayed post) tranquil (nodoka)

This month we are exploring modern and classical kigo for spring and today we have a classical kigo: tranquil (nodoka). Chèvrefeuille says that he loves the tranquility of an early spring morning, when the sun is slowly rising, birds praise their Creator and slowly but surely tranquility fades away – the world comes alive again after a tranquil night. He has shared two haiku on this topic:

tranquility
the first torii (*) in the middle
of the barley field

(*) A Torii is the sacred archway of a Shinto shrine.

tranquility –
finally I have found peace,
blossoms have fallen

© Koyu-Ni (Tr. Chèvrefeuille)
