Carpe Diem Haiku Writing Techniques #16 (Shiki’s) Shasei

Come spring as of old.
When such revenues of rice.
Braced this castle town!

evening
waves come into the cove
one at a time

ame no hi ya seken no aki o sakai-cho

a rainy day
the autumn world
of a border town

at sunrise
wandering over the hazy heath
the cry of an owl

as the sun shines
sweet spring, enjoy life’s offer
a welcoming sight

before the dusk
sculpture of silky thread
the last of the light

gleams like a full moon
golden as the crisp leaves
summer is over
