Haiku Carpe Diem #134, Sae Kaeru (return of the cold)

The Carpe Diem Haiku Prompt is Sae Kaeru (return of the cold).

I return to three images for three Haiku today. The first, a partner to my previous  Haiku for Risshun.  The second a more classic style for this Kigo and the last, well you know I just I had to…

Sae Kaeru, Kaeru
Whatever will be will be
Carpe frigus diem

Que Sera indeed. I hope you seize your day, whatever it may be.

    The 2nd one is my favorite … each line has a punch for attention! Nicely done!!


  2. I really like the first one 🙂


  3. JRB … what a treat. Lovely triplet of haiku, but the second is my favorite.


    • By the way … to give you an answer on your question. There is a kigo for the rainy days at the end of Summer … Tsuyu Bai-u … it means rainy days/times and is a kigo for the rain time at the end of May/June in the Northern hemisphere.

    Is that last line in Latin “Seize the frigid day”?

    Cold Snap


  5. oops, responded to MMT by mistake …. so again, the second one is stunning…let’s hope it’s winter’s ‘final’ trick…


  6. Second one is real haiku, but the wordplay of the third gets my vote,

      Thanks Bjorn. I’m alway conscious that many of my Haiku may not please the pursuits. But I love writing them and am delighted you enjoy reading them 🙂


  7. JazzBumpa says:

    All wonderful. I LOVE that top picture.



  8. My admiration to all three of them, JRB, yet the second one is closest to heart. Something preciously fragile facing that evil trick 🙂

      Thank you Esenga.
      To be able show humility under attack and see the positives during adversity is a sign of a beautiful and content soul methinks. Now, to achieve it 🙂
