Will put my haiku here for this event:

Obon, a time for family reunions.

My offspring grey and
wrinkled, home again. Tears well.
This my last Obon?

Tired feet treading on
familiar tatami.
Home again for Obon...

One more year slipped by.
Family room full once more,
happy memories...

A haiku related to the dancing part of Obon.

drummers up on high.
Obon beats again.

More to come...
