Carpe Diem #953 Air

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Another day in our wonderful Haiku Kai. This month it's all about haiga and spring. Today I love to inspire you with a few haiku by Jane Reichhold and a nice piece of music.
Today our prompt is air a nice one I would say to create haiga with.

before it comes
the knowing of rain
in the air

sea air
each cell fills
with salt water

morning air
tightly rolled
in her curlers

The thin spring air her scent is awesome and with the breeze all those wonderful perfumes of new life comes to us. If you smell those perfumes you know that spring is there ... those perfumes are filling me with joy and hope ... new life ... maybe even new times in which peace will come a little bit closer.

The above video is created by Nelson Doroso and it shows you David Garrett performing Air by J.S. Bach. In my opinion on of Bach's most nice and fragile pieces of music. I am a "fan" of the music by Bach I even played a lot of his organ-works at home and in church.

Listen to the music and let it inspire you to create haiku / haiga.

one spring morning
nature's perfume
