fiori di ciliegio -
un battito d'ali 
lungo il fiume

a beating of wings 
along the river

翼の鼓動
川に沿って

  1. Wonderful haiku! The “may wind” took me back immediately: a place in the country, the days before washing machines, certainly before dryers, and laundry–on the line outside–smells so good!

  2. Thank you with all my heart Sasha A.Palmer!
    I’m glad I reminded you of a happy and fragrant moment!

  3. These are beautiful haiku! I loved the photographs too.
