Poem By Masaoki Shiki

entangled with
the scattering cherry blossoms—
the wings of birds!

Comments about Haiku 05

This haiku relieves from all worries and signifies the freedom from slavery........The wings of bird signifies the pain and agony of caged bird....Awesome Haiku,
_______________________ Cherry blossoms are the most beloved flower of the Japanese people. They bloom for a brief time and are very fragile, symbolizing the transience of life; this symbolism harmonizes well Buddhist teachings. Masses of cherry blossoms are used as metaphors for clouds. Falling cherry blossoms are likened to snow, and are used as a metaphor for a warrior killed in his youth. _______________________

to every needle
of the needled pine it clings—
the pearl white dew,
forming but to scatter,
