Cherry Blossom Haiga

This is more of a concrete poem than a haiku, but I liked the idea so much I fashioned something for it.  Hope your dreams are full of spring flowers.

    May flowers be in the coming spring for you too. A great ending to the day.

    Moonlight cherry blossoms?! Yes please! That sounds like the promise of an unbelievable midnight stroll outside alone.

      Doesn’t that sound blissful. I want to do this sooooo badly. There are rivers lined with cherry trees in Japan. How I would love to walk along the banks under the fall of those petals. Oh man. 😦

    Whatever you call it, it’s successful. Very compelling.

  5. Beautiful, zen-like feeling to this.

    Creative and different! I like it.

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Thanks. I’d like better art, maybe a painting instead. I just don’t have the time for that right now, so WordArt had to do. Thanks for sharing it with me.

  7. Raven says:

    This is indeed beautiful! I love what the words say. I am staying with NaHaiWriMo at least for the month of March and this time I am doing the prompts. My March 2nd Haiku are different. I don’t even know if they work … so your feed back is most welcome!

    nice…very cool word art…love me some cherry blossoms….

    • Yousei Hime says:

      I’m glad you came to see it. I would love to get some cherry trees. Maybe I can talk my husband into it this year. If not, it’s off to the nearest teahouse again. Hopefully I’ll make it in time to see them this year.

    I like the form you used here…your words made for a lovely start of my day.

If you leave tracks, I'll find you.
