#Haiku: Willow Branches

willow leaves fallen
clear waters dried up stones
one place and another

bare willow branches
gray reflection on glass
perched high, a crows nest

From Carpe Diem: Welcome to a new episode in our wonderful “Never Change A Winning Team” month in which we celebrate the beauty of haiku. I have what they call “a writer’s block”, so I couldn’t come up with a beautiful episode today, therefore I have chosen to let you free …

You can make your own choice of a haiku, maybe there is a special haiku that means a lot to you, or you have a favorite haiku written by a classical or non-classical haiku poet, maybe you will introduce one of your own masterpieces … that’s all possible today.

The only thing I would love to read in your post is “Why did you choose this specific haiku?” and I challenge you to create a new haiku inspired on the haiku of your choice.

Author’s Note: I chose a haiku by a classical haiku poet, Yosa Buson because willows are one of my favorite trees.
