NaPoWriMo 2017 Haiku 575 - Day Three

Another day spent mostly on public transport... so glad to finally be grounded now for a few weeks are least. The cherry blossoms are so nearly there, I'm looking forward to seeing them in full bloom!


spring sunshine cool breeze

naked branches charcoal grey

waiting for the warmth


empty park benches

though the trees are full of buds

just wait two more days


mountain forest slashed

like a caesarian scar

rope-way in springtime


KFC bucket

elevated on a plinth

modern totem pole


traditional tiles

black as sticky tar, glinting

in the midday sun


by this sakura

who else has dreamt of a life

bigger than their own?


blooming sakura

swimming in the green hillside

like a shoal of fish
