Four Haiku - Inspired By Matsuo Basho - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

bird song sweet
as the flowers

beginning of autumn
a summer skin
i still carry

the winds of autumn
slowly the leaves wave
the season goodbye

a flash of lightning
the breeze steals
into my soul

    Absolutely beautiful! I can definitely Basho's influence in your haiku. Basho happens to be one of my favorite haiku poets (along with Kobayashi Issa and Yosa Buson) and has also influence the way I write haiku. (Report) Reply
