Four Haiku - Inspired by Matsuo Basho


spring
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

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
