Haiku: Carpe Diem #68, winter grasses (fuyu kusa)

Winter GrassImage Credits

Today’s Carpe Diem Prompt is Winter Grasses (fugu kusa).

Snow blankets the field
Made hay whilst the sun shone bright
Frosted Bail of grass

Frosted Bail of grass
Memories of Summer gold
Turns the ground purple

Turns the ground purple
Combine’s red with Moon’s blue
The Cow eats tonight

The Cow eats tonight
Winter grasses, chewed to cud
Snow blankets the field

      Thank you Lolly, it is more in line with the classic style…which is not my natural style. I’m pleased you liked it and thanks for the feedback 🙂
