In May

01 May


has spring come
or the year gone away?
second last day
(© Basho)

rummaging through the memory
old pictures and notes

the last in consciousness
clear sky behind a canopy
smell of spring

imaginary sparks
night has no sleep

dreams colored in truth
strange visits from space
disrupt the days

losing myself again
among curves of imagination

Linked to Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #82, Basho’s first haiku (1662) “has spring come”

    What a beautiful piece you have painted here, “behind a canopy” your “curves of imagination”…just wonderfully written on this May 1st!!

    Lovely – but ruined by repeating the poem underneath

      I wasn’t sure if it was readable so I posted a clear version.
