Revised Haiku

It’s procrastination Monday, so here are a few haiku for Carpe Diem’s revise a haiku spot. The haiku are by Sōen Nakagawa. I have revised them and ended with a haiku tying them both together.

one note of the shakuhachi
resounds endlessly
piercing the winter clouds

I hear the pipes

and a hill green and purple

echoes winter sky

 

disappearing
snow on mountain peak
unfurls a Rainbow

© Soen Nakagawa

 

winter’s cold breath

a rainbow

in the new sun

 

piped notes

sadness and arched rainbow

of beauty

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
