Haikus IV (From Japan)

Cliffs disappearing
Before my very eyes...
The sea mist rises

Got greeted by a
Russian on a bicycle...
Here in "Miyako"

In the country-side
Rows and rows of paddy fields
Not a single cow

Snowing pink blossom
Ravens grubbing for worms this...
Wet may morning

You little flower
I can see you peeping with...
Make-up mirror poised

The first primroses
Of the season bid farewell...
In "Kisakata"
