Valley Stream



Today I love to share a weblog on a haiku by Onitsura (1660-1738) a haiku poet which is the haiku master for this month of Carpe Diem. Today we had a wonderful haiku written by him:

tani-mizu ya ishi mo utayomu yama-zakura


the wild cherry:
stones also are singing their songs
in the valley stream


This haiku by Onitsura is meant to be as a source for inspiration. So I was inspired and wrote this haiku:

gurggling valley stream
brings joy to the heart of Mother Nature -
Il Silenzio
