Basho- the complete haiku

into this sea
throwing my sandals
rain on my hat

without a hat
a winter rain falls on me
so what

the oak tree
pays no attention to flowers
a pose

on a mountain path
where something might charm you
a wild violet

rabbit-ear iris
it gives me an idea
for a poem

the one thing
that lights my world
a rice gourd

various grasses
each flower
an achievement

drinking saké
without flowers or moon
one is alone

don't be like me
even though we're like the melon
split in two
