Found Poem Friday: haiku masters

I’m happy to see all the wonderful haiku from yesterday!  Truly a great display. Today I will post some that I’ve found by the “masters.”

as if listening
to the beautiful words
a winter rose           (from Goto)

mother walks
she, too, will become
the winter rain           (from Hasegawa)

a molting chicken turns
and surprises
the wind                       (from Hasegawa)

a dharma discarded
without its eyes
ice on the rice field

In January in Japan, many dharma figures sold at the shrines.
People put one eye on the figure and at the end of the year,
when their wish is realized, they put the other eye on the figure.            (from

Mt. Fuji disappears
and just the red pepper field
in the fog
(from Shinoda)
