Boy’s Day Haiku

kintaro doll up

held in palms of a young boy

mochi in the mouth


riding on the bear

stringing the carp in the air

the dragon breathes fire

* Submission for Carpe Diem # 213 Prompt. It is particularly based on the celebration of Boys’ day In Japan. Since I have no knowledge of the festival, I read through the information available along with the declaration of the challenge and the one available on wikipedia and on the basis of that, I have created these two haiku. I apologize in advance if I have mistaken in understanding the essence of the festival in any way.
