A number of years ago, I put together a book of my favorite haiku, from the 18th and 19th century Japanese haiku masters. (Not modern haiku, facetious or otherwise).

At the turn of the seasons, I'll go back and read those that fall in with the time of the year.

First day of spring.
I keep thinking about
the end of autumn.

Thus spring begins:
old stupidities repeated,
new errors invented.

Wonderful! Thank you.

Issa cracks me up.
Dear Barbara... Do you ever think about sharing your art? I have a strong feeling there may be a few of your feline friends who might want to make an appearance. Am I correct?
