Can cat willow become temple flower ?

the willow


David English
the willowlike a gray cat...a temple flower too

sakuo Japanese
siro neko ni niru yanagi mata hotoke bana
白猫に 似る柳また 仏花

Issa Original
shiro neko no yôna yanagi mo o-hana kana
白猫のやうな柳もお花哉

sakuo Imagination
Cat willow is simple flower that grows on the bank. It looks like cat tail
, and white cottom.
Even such wild flower is votive to the altar of buddha. It is still and peace.
