Instead of a bat,
she wields a wicked white broom,
sweeping home plate clean.

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.

Broom

The blue-handled broom,
weary from too much sweeping,
sags in the corner
as if an afternoon nap
might help revive its bristles.
