Temporary yet lasting (troiku)

(troiku)
Life’s a masquerade
springtime’s new chapter
temporary ruse

life’s a masquerade
dressed in floral camouflage
pink pedal pushers

springtime’s new chapter
arousing and illicit
scent of fresh ink

temporary ruse
despite its transience
forever memoirs

Blossoms on the bay (troiku)

doubt it not:
the blossoms of the tide also show
spring upon this bay

© Basho (Tr. Barnhill)

Oh the giddiness!
ruffles and crinolines
frilly waves

Oh the giddiness
rolling over laughing
foaming at the mouth

Ruffles and crinolines
rising and falling like –
can can dancers

Frilly waves
memories of yesteryear
our innocence
