Has Spring Come – CDHK’s Tan Renga (Soliloquy no Renga) – May 2, 2015

Today we have the first day of spring in spite of the day.

has spring come
or the year gone away?
second last day

this cold misty morning
holds all its cold secrets

yet a blackbird sings
uplifting my heart in its wake
and spring seems near

cold raindrops fall lightly
the sky grey and heavy

there in the empty field
a tiny sunflower blooms
petals seeking the sun

muddy fields and cold wind blows
surely winter still reigns

the mud-snails roam
across the path at dawn
seeking shelter

through the clouds a ray of light
falls upon the mountain side

in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
