Today’s Carpe Diem Haiku prompt is Shuntoo (Spring lantern).

Today a tale from beside the flickering lantern…

flickering lantern
attracting moths from shadows
kimono slips off

kimono slips off
geisha knows her part by heart
shadow puppetry

shadow puppetry
silhouette of love’s embrace
goose down on futon

goose down on futon
tale of now and yen, beside
flickering lantern

Smiles, love and laughter.
