a departing ship
joining with the sky
and the sea

waxing moon
sailing in the sky --
sleepless night

not allowed
to take off just now --
closed air space

Volcanic eruption in Iceland

Finland's airspace, as widely in Europe, is today closed due to volcanic ash-clouds drifting all over. That ash is dangerous for jet motors...

a silent sky --
a dim view of the sun
through the ashy clouds

Found an airworthy

this hurly mergenser?

Snow spider
on winter's last day
resting a while

We found this spider yesterday on the snow. My wife said she will save this spider and was intended to do it (?!). (She is fond of spiders.) But this spider continued his trip. (Or her.) Where to; no idea. Still snow all over. But melting, as you can see. Snow-spiders nesting somewhere?

One spider from Issa, year 1805

mai-mai ya asu naki haru wo kao wo somete

water spider
on spring's last day
