A Few New Haiku, (2)

Sometimes inspiration comes along when reading a book. These new haiku are inspired by reading Blyth's Haiku Vol. II, Spring (The Hokuseido Press - Tokio).

in the Bamboo
in front of the little cottage
a sparrow sings

the cool breeze
stroking the lovely face
of Buddha's child

the small garden
on the tiny balcony
also Spring

Anything bamboo draws me deeper

Bamboo was the theme of one of my first haiku (in dutch):

bamboe ruist
brengt de geest in vervoering
fluistert geheimen

In English:

bamboo rustles
brings my mind to ecstasy
whispers secrets

It was the 'title-haiku' of my first haiku collection which was published (by myself) in 1998. With this haiku collection I won my first literature prize of my career.

So bamboo is a theme about which I love to write haiku (or other poems).

Thanks for your nice words. Bamboo is one of my favorites to write haiku about.
