Friday Foto Friends..
Haiku and Photos #2

Japanese haiku poetry and photos for Friday Foto Friends.

In A Temple Garden :
"The old pond is silent;  now the hop of a frog
plumbs the evening stillness...
haiku by basho

On a Child's Passing
"Alas, how far beyond recall today,
My little hunter of dragonflies, you stray"
Haiku by Chiyo

The Rainstorm 
"The downpour prickles on the pond,
so sharp It hits the heads
of shallow floating carp." 
haiku by Shiki

My Pond on a rainy day. Goldfish, comets and Shebunkin are Carp.

" How still it is!
The belfry's vibrant chime
does not so much as
stir the cherry-blooms"
haiku by Fuhaku
