Cherry Blossom by Fiona Christian

Four haikus

From all directions
Winds bring petals of cherry
Into the bird pond.

Under the image
of Buddha these spring flowers
Seem somewhat tiresome.

The leafless cherry,
Old as a toothless woman,
Blooms in flowers,
Mindful of its youth.

The oak tree stands
noble on the hill even in
cherry blossom time

—Basho
