Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's my pleasure to bring to you our second episode of the Third Carpe Diem Theme Week "Magnolia Blossoms, haiku by Soseki Natsume".
This Theme Week is a little bit different than the other two Theme Weeks we had, but I think Soseki Natsume deserves his own Theme Week here at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. This week I will share haiku written by Soseki and I hope to tell you all a little bit more about this haiku poet and contemporary of Shiki.
Yesterday I shared a haiku by Soseki on Magnolia Blossoms and one way or the other it turned out that Soseki has written more haiku themed with blossom. So I have another nice haiku by him for you:
Plum flower temple:
From the foothills.
