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.
