Three Spring Haiku by Kobayashi Issa

Spring breeze—
the pine on the ridge
whispers it



Steam on the bay
past midday...
spring rain


Licking a bamboo leaf’s
spring rain...
mouse

(trans. David G. Lanoue)

Why Spring? Well it's spring in Northern Hemisphere ... and the summer sun keeps shining here in Western Australia!
