Four Haiku - Inspired By Matsuo Basho

spring
bird song sweet
as the flowers

beginning of autumn
a summer skin
i still carry

the winds of autumn
slowly the leaves wave
the season goodbye

a flash of lightning
the breeze steals
into my soul

HAIKU 4 JTC: The empty courtyards/ Rustle with autumn leaves and/ Lovers Memories.
Lovely haiku's. I also am a Basho fan!
Absolutely beautiful! I can definitely Basho's influence in your haiku. Basho happens to be one of my favorite haiku poets (along with Kobayashi Issa and Yosa Buson) and has also influence the way I write haiku.
