Haiku Serenity

The leaves never know
Which leaf
Will be first to fall...
Does the wind know?

- Soseki

From watching the moon
I turned
And my friendly old
Shadow led me home

- Shiki

When a nightingale
Sang out
The sparrow flew off
To a further tree

- Jurin

Poppy petals fall
Softly quietly
When they are ready

- Etsujin

Hello! Light the fire!
I'll bring inside
A lovely
Bright ball of snow!
