A Single Leaf, an Impromptu verse

I have written an Impromptu verse ... I saw a single leaf dancing through the streets. It's was a very stormy day today so the last leaves are blown away by that strong wind. But this one single leaf touched me. And I wrote the following haiku on that event:

one single leaf
dances on the shoulder of the wind -
prima ballerina

Isn't it a wonderful little gem? This haiku feels just good and strong. What do you think about this one?

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
