I took the top two photos this morning. It was drizzling. The flower is satsuki which is similar to azalea (tsutsuji), but the flowers and leaves are smaller. It's coincident. This spot, near the river closed to my place, used to be the home of my childhood classmate, and her name was Satsuki because she was born in May. Satsuki can be a season word in haiku, and Samidare (May rain) also. The bottom photo shows the asphalt below under the satsuki bushes.
This afternoon, I wasn’t up to practice kana shodo. I made some black ink and read some good poems. I thought about the photos and came up with two haiku.
The first one is
Let’s cry together
On a rainy day
The second one I cannot translate because of onomatopoeic. We make sounds crying such as shiku-shiku.
Well, I felt much better at the end of my kana shodo class. I was the last to leave the classroom.
