Beach

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.

Yosa Buson’s haiku about pear blossoms and moonlight inspires me to write a new haiku:

 

White blossoms of the pear
and a woman in moonlight
reading a letter.

 
~~ ~~ ~~
 


the moon blossoming
just enough for a woman
to write love letters

one more small wonder
the light from all those fireflies
blotting out the sun

The cleft affords a grand view.


high country morning—
through a cleft in the stone wall
the scent of campfires
