Heeding Haiku with Chevrefeuille – Nov. 12, 2015 – Autumn Rain

Lamp light rain by Lexidreams.

Greetings – this is Paloma, filling in for Chèvrefeuille due to computer problems.

For today let’s look at two autumn haiku by Issa, one of the major haiku poets (along with Basho, Shiki, and Chiyo-Ni):

hizabushi ni hi no chirameku ya aki [no] ame

lamplight glimmers
on my knees…
autumn rain 

and

ta no kari no furusato ika ni aki no ame

what’s your home village like
rice field goose?
autumn rain

Haiku Guy explains that, “from one traveler to another, Issa questions the wild goose (or geese).”

four a.m.
a distant freight train
parts the autumn rain 

‌‍- Paloma

For this week, please write a haiku inspired by autumn rain, lamplight, or traveling … or anything that inspires you in the photo, video, or haiku by Issa. When you have written your haiku, please TAG Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille and Mindovemisery’s Menagerie. Then add your link to the Mister Linky widget below.

Have fun!

        In the south they call it, “Squeezing the stuffing out of you”.

        A smile for you:
        “A man opens his door and finds a snail on his front porch. He picks it up and throws it across the street. A year later the man opens his door and finds the same snail on his front porch. The snail looks up and says, ‘What the $@#%! was *that* all about?'”

    Thanks for filling in Paloma. I hope to have a running PC this week. I am in the nightshift so I can use the PC on the unit were I am working, but of course that’s not mentioned to be so.
