.. .. .. .. .. .. .. Bamboo in my Valley

Bamboo groves sourround our home on three sides. They are a marvel in any season, but in winter, with snow, they strike me as especially beautiful.

coloring sky and snow -
bamboo dancing

早暁の竹を揺らして春の雪   毅

late snow
on the bamboo grove -
the mind soaring

...................................................................................................................






the sound of iced snow
dripping
in the bamboo grove

.. .. .. quite an eery sound this morning getting to the mailbox.
We can only hear this on very seldom late-winter mornings, when the wet snow of last evening has iced and starts melting now in the sunshine.

a white cap
for each yuzu -
late spring snow

Yuzu (Japan) a ctiron fruit

.. .. .. .. .. from earth to heaven
.. .. .. .. .. snow blowing up -
.. .. .. .. .. early morning storm


... in early winter, we had the following situation

heavy snowstorm -
snowflakes going
back up to heaven

kaze no oto
takeyabu ni kaze

.. .. .. .. the sound of wind
.. .. .. .. wind in the bamboo grove
.. .. .. .. wind in the pines


Read some musings about Haiku, Bamboo and the Wind,
all together forming my Haiku Sensei, Bamboo Sensei.
