Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
First of all ... my mom is at home and she will recover totally according to her doctor, but it will take a while. All is well with her ... and I am so blessed that she is home again with my dad and I am blessed with you all my dear friends on Carpe Diem. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.
The last two days were about music and today our new prompt can be called music as well, only in an other way. Today our prompt is ember (or ash, coals, smoldering remains). I didn't know this word so I had to search for it's meaning and some synonyms of it to write my haiku for today.
uzumibi ya ari to wa miete haha no soba
You would think that they're buried
Close to mother's side
Or this one, also by Buson:
uzumibiya tsuiniwa niyuru nabenomono
In the end will cook
A one-pot dish
And another by Buson:
uzumibiya waga kakuregamo yukino naka
My hidden house
Also in the snow.
And a last one written by Issa:
tabako no hi te ni uchinuite yusuzumi
knocking my pipe's ember
into my hand --
Aren't they wonderful? I love to write haiku, but it is not always an easy task. With this prompt I had some difficulties but I succeeded.
are the only witnesses -
second day of the year
light of ember
mysterious shadows on the wall -
a cool summer night
