Five Haiku

 

Spring rain;

Rain-drops from the willow,

Petals from the plum-tree.

 

Shoha

 

 

Reading the letter—

It has been raining also in Edo,—

The spring rain!

 

Onitsura

 

 

After the garden

Had been swept clean,

Some camellia flowers fell down.

 

Yaha

 

 

A swallow

Flew out of the nose

Of the Great Buddha.

 

Issa

 

 

In the shallow river

On hands washing the saucepans

The spring moon.

 

Issa
