Carpe Diem #1685 Troiku Month (14) pink sakura blush

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new episode of our Troiku Month. This time I have chosen a haiku by one of our long time members, Kim Russell. She is a great haiku poetess and has shared a lot of beautiful pieces. The one I have chosen is in my opinion a masterpiece ... She created it back in 2017 and it was themed "cherry blossom". It was a submission for one of our kukai.

I think she will be honored that I use her haiku for today's Troiku challenge. As you all know I love haiku about cherry blossom I have written a lot in honor of their beauty. In our Carpe Diem Library you can find an anthology of my cherry blossom haiku titled "Fragile Beauty".

Here is the haiku by Kim to work with:

pink sakura blush 
spring’s kimono falls to earth
silk snatched by a breeze

Cherry Blossom

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until June 26th at noon (CEST). I will try to publish our new episode later on. For now ... be inspired and have fun!
