Carpe Diem – A Favourite Haiku

Ungraciously, under
a great soldiers empty helmet
a cricket sings
                                Matsuo Basho

Unheard, beneath
a bulldozed enemy building
a child cries
                              Mike Jackson

Carpe Diem My favorite haiku by … #1 Matsuo Basho (1644-1694)
