CD: Fireworks (Hanabi)

Carpe Diem #229 



sparklers in the sky
rain down on river Edo
children clap for joy

hanabi sky lights
connecting stars with color
fade to twinkling dust

    1. I forgot whose blog I was just on with the amazing fireworks display. Have never seen fireworks like that! Well on tv in Sydney, Oz and Boston. Thank you, JzB!

  2. What a wonderful set, the scenery you paint here is wonderful. That second, in some way with a deeper layer, is really a gem Maggie.

    1. Thank you, Kristjaan. Have just joined Haiku group and read list of Basho kigo. Trying to use some of his words. Love Edo which is referred to a lot. We do clap and ooooh and ahhhh in the US.
