Haiku by Taneda Santoka323baeaa4d6a425b7afa976b6f3a4e7b

it may be sunset
but still there is no inn
shrikes sing

—————————

the dry parched stones
roll and roll

————————–

the days are short
evening comes quickly
my backpack is so heavy

————————–

birds in the rain
they have nothing to eat

————————–

soaking wet
I can’t read the letters
on the signpost

————————–

sitting by myself
the mosquitoes
won’t leave me alone

————————–

today, still alive
I stretch out my feet

————————–

some life remains
I scratch my body

————————–

the mountain stillness
makes the rain still

————————–

the sky at sunset
a cup of sake
would taste so good!

————————–

wearily I return to my hut
the moon fills the sky
