Yosa Buson’s haiku about a broom and a beach inspires me to write a new haiku:


The short night—
a broom thrown away
on the beach.

~~ ~~ ~~

a tree for her broom
old woman sweeping the beach
just before nightfall

~~ ~~ ~~

Imagine a broom tidying the beach.

  1. Accustomed to the teach in the desert,,,but teach on the beach? Oy. Still, beautiful.

  2. The ladies used to sweep the beach and all sorts of other unlikely places, when we lived in Seychelles .Backs bent, one arm behind the back andthe other arm busy with besom broom.

  3. Oh this is so beautiful. Loved the photo and haiku. Sigh. Made me homesick for both beach and broom!

  4. I’d love to walk along this lovely beach, but sweep it, I think not!

  5. The beach seems to be awaking from its slumber – the sun seems ready to open up and overtake the nighttime falling upon the rocks. The beach shall have daytime illumination soon…

  6. Imaginative haiku, and this is definitely my kind of beach. 🙂

  7. I could certainly imaging a magical broom sweeping the beach. Your haiku is wonderful and goes so beautifully with your pictures. Nice contribution.

    What a lovely beach! I’ve been there to eat lobsters.

  9. I like the gorgeous light in this photo.

  10. I like the cliffs and tree which give you a nice shadow but also frame and lead our eyes into the shot.

  11. Beach shot is beautiful! Love the broom haiku!

    Happy Weekend to you,

  12. A soft and beautiful moment.

  13. A gorgeous photo of sky, tree and water. Lovely shadow and haiku as well

  14. Sweeping the beach..the image is both magical and surreal – just how can we sweep a beach? As Viv suggests it’s like those tourist resorts where locals have to make the beach more beachy

  15. lovely beach I’d love to walk along it. I like the bright lines of horizon and shore.

  16. And there she stands sweeping the beach.

  17. Very beautiful picture !

  18. lovely place, but I would not go under the tree. What if it drops in your head 🙂

  19. The beach sure is gorgeous!
