White Poppy



Cotton cloud
Smiling at day break
Love nurtured.


This Haiku is shared with Carpe Diem. The Special Prompt is the below Haiku written by Matsuo Basho (1644 - 1694), a Haiku Master. My Haiku is created inspired by Basho's work.


sleeping virgin
white as snow -
will once bloom
                                 -Basho
