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.


Cuckoo breaks the dawn
Basket filled with morning flowers
Bell rings, god wakes up.

To childhood memories. To waking up God. Payback!
