Haiku Hot Summer

Hot summer
Even with the sun hiding
Young bird out of nest

Light summer rain
On the ripe blackberries
Looking tastes so good!

Two cicadas
On a long walkabout
Sun climbing up

Quickly rush upstairs
Passengers streaming downstairs
Train has left again

Pastel sky morning
Beethoven’s Pastorale
But the honking cars

Today I’ve heard the sad news about the passing away of Mr. Isamu Hashimoto, longtime haiku editor for The Mainichi Shimbun. He has been an inspiration. I shall miss his expertise and comments on my own haiku.
