#498- famous haiku- Basho, Buson, Issa

in the sea-surf edge

mingling with bright small shells

bush-clover petals

~Basho

my two plum trees are

so gracious…see, they flower

one now, one later

~Buson

in city fields

contemplating cherry trees

strangers are like friends

~Issa

#476 – more Issa

A gate made all of twigs

with woven grass for hinges

for a lock …this snail

Hi! my little hut

Is newly thatched  I see

blue morning glories

#466 – because I love Issa

As the great old trees
are marked for felling, the birds
build their new spring nests

A flowering plum
and a nightingale’s love song
he remains alone

#459 – Basho – famous spring haiku

April’s air stirs in

willow- leaves…a butterfly

floats and balances

White cloud of mist

above white cherry blossoms

dawn shining mountains

#442 – Famous spring haiku

The spring night-

in a dawn of cherry blossoms

it ended

~Basho

Spring too, very soon!
They are setting the scene for it —
plum tree and moon

~Basho

Under the image of Buddha
All these spring flowers
Seem a little tiresome.

~Basho
