In the coolness
of the empty sixth-month sky...
the cuckoo's cry.

Good art thanks for sharing
This can be interpreted in many ways and in many terms......Simply superb.
a beautiful haiku, indeed, but one of despair - I'd say (probably because of Shiki's illness) .
See the following [a hokku by Basho]: there is not that 'emptiness' in Basho's verse.. the moon is shining in all its beauty:
'' a cuckoo cries / and through a thicket of bamboo / the late moon shines ''
.........love to hear the cuckoos cry...beautiful
So simply beautiful!
Cool to read. beautiful meter
so good. you are a good poet.
Speechless...a worthy descendant of the great haiku pieces! Profound and expressive, the cuckoo is probably his despair to the supposed assurance of recent happy events. It presents the real, empty, shallow attitude of(his?) world.
