Farrera [9-13] a gunsaku [haiku sequence]

9. somewhere in the fog
the little bell
around the horse's neck

10. the cuckoo -
is she counting syllables?

11. old man singing in the field
drawing down the sun
all over the valley

12. the patient mule, standing,
what does he think
of the sparrows?

13. feeding time -
the old man
singing to the rabbits
