Entangled

morning glory!
the well bucket-entangled,
I ask for water                                                 Chiyo-Ni
fresh dewdrops from petalled cups
collect in my open palm                                Kim M. Russell, 5th November 2019

My response to Carpe Diem #1775 Morning Glory!

Today we have a new feature called ‘Carpe Diem’s Transformation’, in which the goal is to transform a given haiku into a tanka. Our first haiku is by Chiyo-Ni, the well-known one about the morning glory:

asano eikou yoku baketto entanguru watashiha mizuwo motomeru

morning glory!
the well bucket-entangled,
I ask for water

Chiyo-Ni
