Five Haiku


With clear melting dew,
I’d try to wash away the dust
of this floating world






Drawing purifying 
water—like the monks’ footsteps,
so clear and so cool





Buried under moss
and ivy leaves, but from within
the tomb, a faint prayer





In the sea-surf edge
mingling with
bright small shells ..
bush-clover petals





Mountain-rose petals
falling, falling,
falling now ...
waterfall music






Matsuo Basho  1644 - 1694
