Warazuka (Straw bundles)

Straw Bales

Fall colored mountains
Straw bundles dot barren fields
Field mouse wonderland

“Make bricks without straw.”

These haiku and senryu were written about the fall in response to a challenge I found at Carpe Diem.

    I like the first two the most – with the first one my favorite. Fall colored mountains is good…those autumn shades conjured. Nice.

    A nice set Gene, that Pharaoh’s speech reminded me of ‘let them eat cake’ for some reason.
