Japanese haikus and Poetry

quietly comes the night to the
shadow of cherry blossoms

Matsuo Bashō
on a withered branch
a crow has stopped for a moment
twilight of autumn

darkness has come
time for the birds to leave
to fly home, singing

Ono no Komanchi
the leaves scatter, but
the colour remains the same -
in this fleeting world
of ours, the human heart
is the only such flower


mountains... mountains
if you ever hear their call
it will enslave you
the silence here,
like a siren's song
is where you wish to drown
deeper and deeper...

but what do the cherries taste like
there - in the valley beyond
