Collecting some haiku about visitors . . .


:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


visitors gone -
I am the great dishwasher,
laughs the rain





I usually leave the dirty dishes outside in a great barrel, and last night, there was a good heavenly help !



:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::




rainy season ...
the first drop
on my Buddha's face



He sits outside in my garden and when it rains, he looks like getting the measels ...


Here he is still in the sunshine




Azalea and Shaka


:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


ひとり来て一人を訪ふや秋のくれ
hitori kite hitori o tou ya aki no kure

a person comes
to visit another -
autumn evening

Tr. Gabi Greve


A single person comes
To visit one alone
On an autumn evening.

Tr. McAuley




ひとり来て一人を訪ふや冬の月
hitori kite hitori o tou ya fuyu no tsuki
(1782)

a person comes
to visit another -
moon in winter


. Yosa Buson 与謝蕪村 in Edo .

visit ends
two sugar cubes beside
the cold tea cup


- Shared by Hengameh Ahmadi -



visit ends --
in the rear view
the sun goes down

.................................................................................

some of my old ones


waiting for guests ...
I sweep the path again
and again




客を待つ 吐く息ごとに 春深む

waiting for visitors -
with each breath
spring deepens




footsteps -
the nightly visitors
all exposed




summer visitors ...
the mind cluttered
with trivia




winter visitors -
two friendly demons
smile at me




preparing a teahouse for visitors

ancient tea garden -
polished leaves sparkle
in the spring sun

Hey! Whatever works, Gabi . . . especially when it SAVES work.

What a good chuckle! Thanks for sharing this.

"...a good heavenly help ! ..."

"senryu [is] more mystical and animistic and personificatory . . . that haiku."
--R. H. Blyth, Japanese Life and Character in Senryu , p. 287
Looks like senryu to me, Gabi. And a good one, too.

.....

Good one, Gabi.
