A splash of colour
spring’s detritus gathers
at the gutters
Marcus. It is wonderful hiku poem.
Is this point contents springs and splash ?
Yes, that’s right Yossi. The ‘splash’ is indeed connected to ‘spring.’ ‘Spring’s detritus’ means ‘the remains of spring,’ even though it is summer now, and the ‘splash’ has a double meaning – it refers to the colour of the leaves as well as the sound of water in the gutters (now that it’s the rainy season). Thank you for your kind words.
Good evening Marcus!
I always become study English!
Think you Marcus.

Hokani sakuhin areba up sitekubasai。
return to soil
and let men toil
you will die but bloom again
