Haiku: Evening Sun

On dusky canvas
Evening sun paints cloudy sky
Orange and yellow


Shadowed trees framing
Nature's twilight masterpiece
For all to see

Today's Special has two wonderful haiku written by Shiki. To inspire your own:

tsuridoko ni irihi mori kuru shigemi kana

the evening sun
filters through the undergrowth
onto the hanging bed

and:

rai harete ichiju nu yuki semi no koe

the thunderstorm having cleared up
the evening sun shines on a tree
where a cicada is chirping
