Cherry Blossoms, a Sunday Haiku: Haiku-San

 

 

 

Once upon a time

It snowed in middle summer.

Cherry blossoms life.

 

 

 

 

 

I chose the name Haiku-San as it derives from Haiku, meaning unusual verse in Japanese (hai=unusual, ku=verse, strophe) and San, the honorific Japanese title when speaking about people. San is also the phonetic transcription of the first syllable of the English word Sunday, Sun-day hence Haiku-San, a Sunday feature on Alluring Creations involving Haiku I write.
