#204- tranquil, famous haiku

There is something about haiku classics that is incredibly placid that I struggle to replicate.  I think it is essential in our knock down warp speed world to step back and appreciate the small things and to be observant.  This is what haiku does for me – I hope you enjoy the following

Women planting rice

ugly every bit about them

but their ancient song

– Raizan

For a lovely bowl

Let us arrange these flowers…

Since there is no rice

– Basho

Deep in dark forest

A woodcutter’s dull axe talking…

And a woodcutter

– Buson
