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
Calmly
When they are ready

- Etsujin


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

- Basho
