CD: Kikaku's "The Pheasant"

Carpe Diem Special #51 



We are to write a haiku in the same sense and spirit as this one written by Kikaku:


such a beautiful face
the pheasant scratches it 

with jagged spurs



My inspired haiku:


our undying love
until torn asunder 
by your lies

    1. Thanks, Leslie. Just reminded me of a cat fight but this is what came out. Still something beautiful wounded.
