Haiku: One patch of a rice field

Not everything goes right in the world. When nonseasonal rains arrive out of nowhere, they bring destruction in their wake. This Haiku is nowhere close to the colossal loss farmers experience.   

The paddy farmer
Under the old banyan tree
Weary village weeps

I am eternally grateful to Chèvrefeuille for the daily Haiku prompts at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai


  1. That's a strong haiku. How sad the inspiration you have used.

    1. Thank you so much Kristijaan. Yes it's truly very sad. Not in Basho's spirit, as the haiku you shared and the one you wrote.
