Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Another nice day in haiku paradise Carpe Diem. Today we share haiku on Haru ta (Spring paddy fields), let us look somewhat closer to this kigo for late-spring.
Haru ta rice paddies in spring.
This refers to rice paddies in the spring, before the seedlings have been planted. Over the surface of some paddies, "vetch" will be blooming, and others will be roughly plowed. Later, as paddies are prepared for plowing, the ridges repaired between them, the paddies raked, and so on, the paddies become busy with farm workers. As wet paddies, they will shine brilliantly. But when one speaks of "spring paddies" there are hardly any people out there; everywhere feelings of loneliness and silence remain.

in awe walking through the paddy -
feeling lost and alone
overwhelming experience -
Spring paddy fields
everywhere you look a green sea -
