haiku

Something a bit different this week, a few animal themed haiku

first winter rain;
the monkey also seems to wish
for a small straw rain-coat
Bashō

he has dyed his body
with Autumn –
the Dragonfly
Bakusui

the plovers of the shore
played about
wetting their feet
Buson

after the snakes flee
the eyes that glared at me
remain in the grass
Kyoshi

Bashō
