Carpe Diem Special Haiku Shiki's Evening Sun

In the setting sun
Potato fires are lighted
Wet autumn arriving

Setting sun ahead
Evening arrives slowly
Colours fade to grey

As evening falls
The lake lies with soft ripples
Dogs bark from afar

Evening walks past
Rising smoke from the candle
Cat keeps dreaming on

Out of evening
Wind entering the dark barn
The cows moo, lonely


  1. those poor cows....I love the way you inserted some animals in the lovely set....

  2. Thanks for your comments. Lets see, what Kristjaan has prepared for today.

  3. Beautiful series of haiku Lothar, all little gems, but that 3rd one is really my favorite could have been written by Shiki himself ... well done. Thank you for sharing.
