Time – Abhanga

here in this morning breeze

a flurry of blossoms

afloat, pleasing balsam

whose time has come

The elements of the Abhanga are:

  • stanzaic, written in any number of 4 line stanzas.
  • syllabic, 6-6-6-4 syllables each
  • rhymed L2 and L3 rhyme. Often internal rhyme is employed. End rhyme scheme x a a x , x being unrhymed.

Elm – Flower of the Day

I think it’s a flower, looks more like buds on the way to being something fancy.

spring has sprung

no cherry blossoms yet

but everything else

wears a knowing smile

Time – Senryu

she clings to the edge

of the circle of this life –

biding her time

first chirps of twilight

as day lingers into night –

spring rounds the corner
