Haiku Carpe Diem Special #12, Buson’s Scarecrow

ScarecrowImage Credits

Today’s Carpe Diem prompt Scarecrow is Yosa Buson’s haiku about a Scarecrow:

the owner of the field
goes to see how his scarecrow is
and comes back

From seeing the image above, my thoughts wandered in these directions…

Floating on Rapeseed
Scarecrow wears his Sunday Best
Flocks flown, be at ease

~ | ~

Solitude to think
If I only had a brain
Yellow field of dreams

~ | ~

My Maker’s Likeness
Made to serve, never question
Scarecrow bows his head

    i really loved your 2nd haiku… too bad the scarecrow doesn’t have a brain…


  2. WOW! JRB what a treat. I love these haiku set very well. My favorite is the first one could have been written by one of our classical haiku masters. Thank you for sharing.

    Oh the 2nd and 3rd one are brilliant – they’re all good, but those two are great haiku.

  6. His Sunday best seems a little shabby, don’t you think?
