White Crane

How I wish to call
A white crane from Fukei,
But for this cold rain.                                 Kikaku

Nimble fingers crease sharp folds
and origami wings fly.                              Kim M. Russell, 29th May 2019

My response to Carpe Diem #1669 Tan Renga Challenge Month May 2019 (16) white crane

May is almost over and today’s haiku is by a classical master, Kikaku, an apprentice and very close friend of Basho. It’s a haiku Kikaku wrote to comfort Basho a few days before he died.
