Tango No Sekku (Boy’s Festival)

Samurai helmets
boys want Iron Man’s
mum covers her face

With carps swimming in the air, Japan is busy celebrating Boy’s festival. So, here is my tribute to the young boys and cheers to manhood.


Temperance Haiku

White snow on Fuji
as I try to look within
the temple bell rings

Today at Carpe Diem Haiku, we are celebrating the Temperance tarot card. My haiku signifies a tranquil state of life which can be due to the upright temperance tarot card.
As a gift to my Carpe Diem haijin, I have composed my first haiku in Japanese, please read here.
