Morning haiku and waka – April 24, 2015

Turtles of course!

a spring ritual
inside the lotus pond
turtles spawn

walking through the pass
a cuckoo sings its odd song
adopted at birth
that crazy nest-less hermit
never sees the lotus bloom

a passing moment
even as the lotus blooms

  1. Lovely writing, Bastet, I like it because it helps me envision and vicariously experience sights I have either not seen in a long time or ever, such as turtles and lotuses.


    • Thanks Oloriel for dropping in … the turtle rituals are in full swing right now … though we’d have to wait until summer to see so many of them like in the photo, here they’re pretty grown up. Glad you enjoyed the post.
