The sound, color, and scent of nature are felt in these short

Drawn up from my frozen well...
A glittering of spring

Nature Haiku - Nature Haiku Poems
Haiku with sharp, natural images that linger in the mind.
A giant firefly:
That way, this way, that way, this -
and it passes by.
Following the train,
The long black smoke is crawling
Over the withered plain.
In pale moonlight
the wisteria's scent
comes from far away.
Snow whispering down
All day long earth has vanished
Leaving only sky.
In all this cool
is the moon also sleeping?
There, in the pool?
Nature Haiku - Deeper Meaning
These nature haiku not only contain the sharp, brillant images of nature, but also have a more poignant feel and often hint at deeper meanings.
Death, loneliness, the fleetingness of time and the seasons, as well as renewed hope and awakenings are all brought to mind.
The winds that blow-
ask them, which leaf on the tree
will be next to go.
How I long to see
among dawn flowers,
the face of God.
Don't weep, insects -
Lovers, stars themselves,
Icicles and water
Old differences dissolved...
Drip down together
And all our world is dew . . . so dear,
So fresh, so fleeting
Issa(on the death of his child)
Nature Haiku Poems
I kill an ant
and realize my three children
have been watching.
Starting to call you
Come watch these butterflies . . .
Oh! I'm all alone
A harsh-rasping saw...
music of cold-poverty
in the winter midnight
Dead my old fine hopes
And dry my dreaming but still...
Iris, blue each spring
A gold bug -
I hurl into the darkness
and feel the depth of night
Fallen sick on a journey,
In dreams I run wildly
Over a withered moor.
Covered with the flowers,
Instantly I'd like to die
In this dream of ours!
in leaf dew
