Flies buzzing, gorged to the full

Majestically

Three centuries old, she sits

What secrets she keeps

      Great presentation! (and haiku)

      Let me introduce you to TANKA

      The blossoms dancing

      In the breeze that special fall

      Long ago have passed

      Yet their dreams still dances on

      Blessing moments when we kiss
