he points at the maple seeds’ dance
“it’s a heli!”
sticks the seed on end of his nose
I found my inspiration from Kristjaan Panneman © Chèvrefeuille. He introduced me to a wonderful Dutch haiku poet, Wim Lofvers while reminding me of my childhood. We not only made heli’s out of the maple seeds, we used to break them apart, strip out the seed, open the flaps and use the sap to stick them on our nose!
In response to CARPE DIEM HAIKU KAI: Carpe Diem Utabukuro #10 Wim Lofvers’ “a maple seed”
