Carpe Diem – from all directions – May 28, 2015

Week three

from all directions
a golden temple of light
thoughts of peace

Lake Garda
shimmering light on waves
a golden temple

shiho yori hana fuki rete nio no nami

from all directions
blossoms blow into
waves of Lake Lute

open the lock
let the moon shine in –
Floating Temple

Mii Temple,
I’d love to knock on it’s gate:
tonight’s moon

© Basho (Tr. David Landis Barnhill)

Our Host’s Haiku:

full moon
reflecting her beauty in the water
of Lake Biwa

moonlight reflects
spring breeze scatters her beauty
I bow and pray
