cranes

Carpe Diem Theme Week (6) 2 Utabukuro Jane Reichhold

Inspiration post:

"Here is one of my (our host, Chèvrefeuille) favorite haiku written by Jane:

raising his foot
a crane scatters stars
sunk in the pond

Cranes
The Crane stands for 1000 years or an eternity and I think this is very suitable for this tribute for Jane Reichhold. The Queen of Haiku will be remembered for an eternity ... for ever.

And with my (Chèvrefeuille) haiku I love to share my thoughts on that eternity:

thousand thoughts a day
while writing haiku for the world -
the cries of a White Cranes

Jane Reichhold Rest In Peace I will cherish your friendship and love forever. "

cranes stand
gazing into the night sky
endless stars twinkle

    1. Glad you enjoyed. Found the sandhill cranes last year while visiting Ontario near the Georgian Bay. A luck shot. janice

    1. You think I might should change to twinkling? I am really open to suggestions for improvement. janice xx

    2. ...oh it wasn't intended as a correction - perhaps I ought to have said sparkling, as in your words! Though in retrospect, twinkling would perhaps echo the gazing.... but am only saying that now you've prompted a review from my side!!! Yxx

    3. YAM,
      I struggle keeping writing in the same 'tense'. Think I'll just go in and add the second version... thanks for the input. jan xx

    1. Thanks, Hamish. Been feeling like I have skipped a groove when writing lately.
