Wednesday Haiku # 18


             Evening Excavations

At dawn my violets grew aslant; a hole! 
tunneled underneath them by a mole!
 ~~Nozawa Bonchō (野沢 凡兆)

       In a Temple Garden

The Old Green Pond is silent.
 Here, the hop of a frog
plumbs the evening silence: Plop!


The downpour prickles on the pond,so sharp
it hits the heads of shallow floating carp.

Winter's end
  Epitome of Spring

Glimpsed through a crevice in
the garden fence,
one white flower is spring's


 All Heaven and Earth Flowered white obliterate...
Snow...unceasing snow
               ~~ Hashin
