The World Around, Fleeting

Haiku Strain

The Cherry Blossom

Evocative harbinger

Of renewed spirits

Fading to the sun,

Mirages produce a tableau

Ethereal sights

Harvest winds descend

Do you hear the gray wolves’ pine,

Under the blue moon?

At the solstice rise,

like the snow, all disappears

Then returns anew

    Do you hear the gray wolves’ pine, Under the blue moon? These lines reminded me of this line, "Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon?", from the song Colours of the Wind from Pocahontas! Loved your Haikus!
