Iris Christmas... a Haiku

For this month, Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is travelling with Basho on the Narrow Road into the Deep North.

An excerpt from The Narrow Road into the Deep North posted on CDHK -

"Crossing the River Natori, I entered the city of Sendai on May the fourth, the day we customarily throw fresh leaves of iris on the roof and pray for good health."
