Carpe Diem Utabukuro #5 Origami frog

“…choose a favorite haiku or tanka and share your feelings with us, the only thing needed is that you have to write an all new haiku or tanka inspired on the poems you have shared…”

This was my chosen haiku by Richard Wright.

“Coming from the woods

A bull has a sprig of lilac

Dangling from a horn.”
(Richard Wright)

The image of a bull rounding the corner with a sprig of lilac dangling from its horn is comical.

This evoked a memory, inspiring this:

Snail in lilac shell

Creeps on back of yellow chair

Survived paint party
