by Matsuo Basho

From time to time

From time to time
The clouds give rest
To the moon-beholders.


by Matsuo Basho

In the cicada's cry

In the cicada's cry
No sign can foretell
How soon it must die. 


by Kobayashi Issa

That wren

 That wren--
looking here, looking there.
You lose something?


by Natsume Soseki

Over the wintry

Over the wintry
forest, winds howl in rage
with no leaves to blow.


by Masaoka Shiki

Toward those short trees

Toward those short trees
We saw a hawk descending
On a day in spring


by Matsuo Basho

In the twilight rain

In the twilight rain
these brilliant-hued hibiscus . . .
A lovely sunset


by Matsuo Basho

An old silent pond..

An old silent pond...
A frog jumps into the pond,
splash! Silence again. 


by Matsuo Basho

Four Haiku

 Spring:
A hill without a name
Veiled in morning mist.
The beginning of autumn: Sea and emerald paddy Both the same green.
The winds of autumn Blow: yet still green The chestnut husks.
A flash of lightning: Into the gloom Goes the heron's cry.
