Day 4 and have managed to change the look a bit, I went for “elegant grunge” purely because I couldn’t resist the oxymoron! It looks alright too I think. Any how straight into todays haiku as I have to make it up on the spot, and then I’m going to see Bad teacher, the new Cameron Diaz movie for free as I won tickets!
Rush through the crush home
People hurry everywhere
Can’t wait to get home.
Ah the observations of the walk home commute. How dreary nary a cricket or a frog in sight! So here’s a couple from some famous Japanese haiku poets.
Hi no oku ni In the fire-depths
Botan kuzururu Saw the way
Sama o mitsu A peony crumbles
This is by Kato Shuson, he wrote it after an air raid destroyed his house, in world war 2 I think.
Kiri no naka Amid fog
Higurashi naku o To the clear-cicada cries
Ake to suru Dawn comes
This one is by Hashimoto Takako she has some others which I like, but I’ll save them for another day.
