Two Haiku and One Poem about Wind

Utagawa Hiroshige 1797-1858

Utagawa Hiroshige 1797-1858

I.
The spring moon watches
The wind blowing at night – plum
Petals drift gently

 

水の花 Mizu no hana: water flowers
Heavy blossoms pull down the branches
Of trees by the river.
Higher blossoms weep down their petals
Upon the surface of the river
In which the submerged blossoms drown.
Dead leaves cover the earth
beneath the trees.
Sharp winds blow
Removing the corpses of winter.
