Tentoumushi (Lady bug) – July 26, 2015

red and black robes flap
visiting geraniums

flying erratically
the lady bug crash lands
in the rose-bush

young Tentoumushi
walks in the summer garden
her robe flies open

cool afternoon
sit under the persimmon
sip warm sake
Lady Bug slips from her robe
as the shakuhachi sighs

  1. I love the cool sensuality you introduce here with the idea of the Ladybug’s robe – it gives these haiku an effortless classical atmosphere 🙂


in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
