Buson’s, a Hand-Ball

English: Cherry blossoms in Branch Brook Park,...

Childrens’ toy
Soaked and sodden by spring rain
Out of reach

Out of reach
Unlike spring cherry blossoms

Unrecognized by nature
Childrens’ toy


Written in imitation of Buson, I used some of the background information on his haiku to construct this chained trio. I found the wonderful prompt for these haiku at Carpe Diem.

  1. What a nice revised haiku trio (in cascade) Gene … thank you for sharing.

  2. Love this.. as always in a cascade it’s important that all are good haiku by themselves.
