Up and Down the Sunset


up and down the sunset

a sphere of tiny flies dance

first blossom


This poem was inspired by spring unexpectedly interrupting February.  And, to finish, here’s the La’s –



spheres of tiny flies

or sawdust swirls where he works

in autumn sunbeams


This poem was written in response to Carpe Diem “Little Creatures” #14, Basho’s ” spring rain,” another great prompt hosted by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here.
