In Honor of Cherry Blossoms, some Haiku

A lovely spring night
suddenly vanished while we
viewed cherry blossoms
-Basho

Come out to view
the truth of flowers blooming
in poverty
-Basho



To learn how to die

watch cherry blossoms,
observe chrysanthemums
-Anonymous




On the old plum tree,

one blossom by one blossom,
the spring thaw is born
-Ransetsu



By the barn, snow flies
In the field, cherry blossoms….
Walk which way, which way?
-Cloudscome


Our classroom window
Cherry petals drifting past...
Oh No! It’s snowflakes!
-Cloudscome
