Magic Fields Haiku

nature’s open arms

sympathy for every being

let the tears stream down


green and yellow fields

radiant crops of mustard

hug the stalks of love


* For Carpe Diem # 277.


Taue (Rice Planting) Haiku

reflecting shadows

puddles of water on fields

workers in sedge hats


fields filled with water

men descends to place seedlings

gilded performers


women in kasa

traditional performance

the paddies planted


bow down in prayer

planting the mother earth’s womb

promising fine crops


young girls singing songs

hoping for a good harvest

time for festival


aura of dances

enhanced crop’s vitality

melodies in air

* Written in response of Carpe Diem # 220
