sweet perfume
mingles with the sound of rain –
a dog barks (Chevrefeuilles)

the scent of parched earth wafting
signal rains coming downwind

Shepherd’s Purse

Credits: Sheperd’s Purse (Nazuna)

Carpe Diem Prompt

Sheperd’s Purse is a little herb which flowers whit little white flowers and it’s leaves look like a little purse that’s why it’s called Sheperd’s Purse. It’s a fragile little herb and mostly it’s overlooked, but (as we will see) it came under the attention of Matsuo Basho once and he wrote a nice haiku about it. This haiku is a kind of tribute to the beauty of Sheperd’s Purse and it shows us how we have to look at nature (as haiku-poets). Even the little creatures/creations are worth writing a haiku about … as we all know from our “Little Creatures” feature.

SHEPHERD’S PURSE

lovely shepherd’s purse
along my path beckoning
she’s more than fragile
