Cold Rain: Basho Inspired Creations

A cold rain starting

And no hat —



drenching me throughout

a cold rain spattering down

clothes cling to body


tilted umbrella

drops soaking the plastic face

thunder up above

* The first haiku is written by Basho. And the other two are my own inspired creations.

Here is where you tell me something...
