Wednesday Haiku No 26

So many things are happening this week and as usual, the world is in an uproar. Most of the uproar is hypocritical rock throwing by a very evil fake-snowflake generation who get their virtue from public displays of self righteous indignation. We don't need to join the uproar, we can step out of it. Let's take a step back and away from  to the sane and safe world of Haiku where nature subdues evil with calm.

                 Double-Edged
Into the darkness
 which a lightning-streak
Has Slashed...
recedes the wild night-heron's shriek. 
 --Basho               





nacreous :mother of pearl clouds


                                   Marine

The midnight sky:
an oyster shell
aswirl with nacreous flakes 
of cloud;
The moon: a pearl.
            ----Ho-O


 


                  Seaside Sketch

A gloomy downpour,
pierced by shafts of light;
Out on the glittering sea,
the sails are white!
---Shido








Most Precious Possession

Still on my window sill
the moonlight is left.
 The thief overlooked it
in his theft.
