Pay attention. Observe closely. Relax. And write a small stone a day. Even a heartbreaking one.

shiki kukai - melon

The theme for the Kigo section of the June shiki kukai at haikuworld was "Melon". I thought it should be easy, but I took some time to write this one.

There are no results (or votes) for this kukai.
