Carpe Diem Haiku Tan Renga Challenge, Buson's "In the stillness"






in the stillness
between the arrival of guests
the peonies
(Yosa Buson, 1716-1783)

pink peonie in the wind
moves like a ballet dancer


in the stillness
between the arrival of guests
the peonies
(Yosa Buson, 1716-1783)

not longing for kaiseki
not drinking tea but water


in the stillness
between the arrival of guests
the peonies
(Yosa Buson, 1716-1783)

while frangrant air is wafting
they hum the wind’s lullaby
