Haiku Carpe Diem Special #26, Onitsura’s Camellia

Today is the second Carpe Diem Special of this month with the prompt being Onitsura’s Camellia:

mizu irete hachi ni uketaru tsubaki kana

putting in the water
the vase received
the camellia

Just one Haiku for the pot today…

Camelia Teapot

steeped in tradition
the camellia blossoms
whilst the tea brews

Please leave a comment before you leaf.

Smiles, love and laughter
