For Summer

bathtime
for once she wants
to keep her socks on


bedtime
suddenly she's learned
how to hop

  2. Do you write tankas, too? This one's my favourite, written by Mokichi sometime in the late 1800's, I think.

    from where
    a red tomato
    lies rotting
    I am only
    a few steps away

    It's tacked on the pegboard above my desk, and whenever I see it, it blows me away!

  3. Hi Sue - yes I do, and have had a few published here and in the US. There a few in the recent Simply Haiku, link on the site list.
    I love this Mokichi one - thanks for letting me know about it.
    Best
