Carpe Diem Haiku No. 886 Shepherds




He’s weather beaten
Onwards on his trusty horse
The good shepherd cares

No dreaming, shepherd
Of fires, smoke, or company
A rest on horseback

The wind keeps bruising
All grass up to the mountains
Where the shepherd rides

  4. In a way I sense the spirit of Basho in the scenes you have painted in your haiku.
