Has Spring Come

Written in reply to Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #82.

          has spring come
          or the year gone away?
          second last day.
          -Basho-(trans. Jane Reichhold)

          pine in from the cold
          watching chestnuts cook.

          children laugh—
          drawing faces in
          window frost.

          the ice covered pond.

          all first dreams
          will have to wait for
          the next moon.

          does the snow care
          in what year it falls?
