Haibun - Sa Majeste de Rose

Sa Majeste de Rose

Wind carries the scent of a woman
in the Alsace region of France across
the Atlantic.
She is a rose held to the branch.
Masses of verdant leaves spill dewdrops
on silken petals. How one can forget she
has thorns!

summer fog --
a green beer bottle
rolls in with the waves
