Shining Wind

a fledgling’s first leap
floating on sun-sprinkled wind
morning birdsong

My response to Carpe Diem #1649 shining wind (kaze hikaru)

In our exploration of classical and non-classical kigo (seasonwords) for spring, today we have another classical kigo taken from the Shiki Saijiki: ‘shining wind’ (kaze hikaru), which refers to the sparkling of spring sunshine and a gentle wind on a sunny spring day:

kaze hikaru makoto no nata ni hanagoro mo

wind shines
around truth’s flag
and the symphony of flowers as well

Taeko Watanabe. (*1960 -)

I took a haiku from a recent haibun I wrote for a dVerse Poets prompt and reworked it.
