last cherry petals
drift to the ground
I miss myself

has gotten used to deep snow...
spring blossoms

Wonderful haiku by Chen and Amin. Both haiku are activity-biased and the creative transformation (zoka)is well crafted. Yugen is well reflected in Chen's haiku in the bottom section (shimo go)'I miss myself'.The images ( silence and snowflakes)created by Amin is elegant.
