Carpe Diem Haiku Japanese Garden #2


Temple and garden
Bell and the fragrance of blossoms
Spring reigning Japan

Guests enter chanoyu
Boiling water meets matcha
Spring in the garden

(chanoyu 茶の図 tea house, matcha 抹茶 powdered green tea)

Golden pavillion
A daimyo looks into spring
Forgetting the world

(daimyo 大名 feudal lord, literally great name)
