they have travelled far

they seek rest

“We are exploring classical and modern kigo this month and today I have a nice classical kigo (seasonword) for you, Kazahana (snowflakes).

I was a little bit confused as I sought the internet for the translation of snowflakes, all translations gave another Japanese word for snowflakes except the website of Gabi Greve. So it wasn’t easy to find a few nice examples of this classical kigo, but here are a few by Issa:

little straw mat–
the cat comes with a coat
of snowflakes

snowflakes flitting down–
a winter solstice
celebration

snowflakes
cover the red roses
on a new grave

falling gently
snowflakes
fragile beauty

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
