Utabukuro #Geisha

I don't have much of Haiku knowledge nor do I know much about any renowned Haiku poets.

I am not much of a frog lover but I did like the Haiku about 'Geisha' written by Chèvrefeuille.

geisha's secret life
gathering tea leaves
for her lover

© Chèvrefeuille
 as she always did
as long as i can recall
longing his return
dreaming his visit
she glows in his love's casket
as he hugs her tight
but her dream's broken
as she hears the cuckoos call
crestfallen within
mustering courage
she again gathers tea leaves
           for her lover......
