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

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
