Petals of the Sakura (Haiku)
They dance among the
Sakura trees making this
years spring come to life.
With their ceol-sihde
they weave a mystical spell
that captures the heart.
Clouds part to reveal
the bright full moon, which in turn
strengthens the draiocht
The huro night is
lit even brighter by their
merryment and play
Shee gatsu now has
finally ended and all
the sihde must return.
Away from sendai
and back to their beloved realm
Tir na nÓg to sleep.
