Sunday Haiku


Here's some classic haiku, all taken from The World of Zen (Vintage, 1960), edited, with an introduction, by Nancy Wilson Ross.

Not a single stone 
To throw at the dog.
The wintry moon.

Striking the fly
I hit also
A flowering plant.

Evening rain.
The banana leaf
Speaks of it first.

Sticking on the mushroom
The leaf
Of some unknown tree.
