March Haiku

March Winds

March winds fiercely blew.
Leaves gathered on the doorstep
I don’t need a rake!

Icy Water

Icy water flows,
fallen leaves how you vex me.
Mold in one hour.

Visiting Feline

Visiting feline
graces our garden each day.
Does your mama know?

Neighborhood Squirrel

amassing a trove of nuts,
please spare my new lawn.

About the Haiku Master From Wikipedia:

Matsuo Bashō (松尾 芭蕉?, 1644 – November 28, 1694), born Matsuo Kinsaku (松尾 金作?), then Matsuo Chūemon Munafusa (松尾 忠右衛門 宗房?),[1][2] was the most famous poet of the Edo period in Japan. During his lifetime, Bashō was recognized for his works in the collaborative haikai no renga form; today, after centuries of commentary, he is recognized as a master of brief and clear haiku. His poetry is internationally renowned, and within Japan many of his poems are reproduced on monuments and traditional sites.

  1. Honestly, you’re a marvel! I love these Haikus! And the accompanying photos! Thank you for sharing your amusements and poetic renderings, and for the smiles they brought.


    • Thank you! They were such fun to write. I’ve really let my poetry lapse. This was the perfect opportunity to brush up a bit. I went outside with the camera and took pics for three minutes. Then I downloaded them and challenged myself to write one for each photo.

      Thanks so much for commenting. And I love your handle “alohapetunia” Lovely.


      • I love to write, too, and used to compose Haikus often. I’ve also let my creative writing slide, as I seem to have a never-ending array of higher priorities. That said, I’m sure with a little extra effort, I can make room in my juggling act for some leisure-writing! Thanks for the inspiration!


        • And you are off to a good start with your kitty at the keyboard Haiku. I was writing occasionally and other priorities always kicked in. Now that I’ve committed to writing every single day, I find that I make the time and really, really enjoy it. Go for it! Report back.


          • Thanks for the encouragement! I do write quite a bit each day, but not for personal pleasure — seems there’s always a cause that needs attention and articulate representation. I’m going to take a page from your handbook, and commit to writing more (if not daily, at least more often — good for starters!). I’ll keep you posted…
