Open Thread: Haiku

Hosted by a Japanese garden

An old silent pond...
A frog jumps into the pond,
splash! Silence again.
- Bashō

In the twilight rain
these brilliant-hued hibiscus -
A lovely sunset
- Bashō

Consider me
As one who loved poetry
And persimmons.
- Shiki

Over-ripe sushi,
The Master
Is full of regret.
- Buson

My favorite is the last one ^_^

Friday Recommendations!  What have you been reading/writing/listening to/playing/watching lately?  Shamelessly self-promote or boost the signal on something you think we should know about - the weekend’s coming up, give us something new to explore!  (Note: don’t forget to post new comments rather than replying to other comments!)  Alternately, write us a haiku!
