Spring Cleaning

night thaws to morning
the clean broom of spring snowfall
sweeping cold from stones

night thaws to morning
a rim of frost on the grass
turning to dew

the clean broom of spring snowfall
biting wind and ice
gentled by the sun

sweeping cold from stones
leaves a wake of greenery
a morning bouquet

My response to Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #117: the cold night

This weekend our meditation challenge is to create a ‘fusion-ku’ from two given haiku and then, from the ‘fusion-ku’, create a troika:

spring snow
purifies earth and heaven
our enemies perish

Mizuhara Shûôshi

 the cold night
comes out of the stones
all morning
