Winter Haikus

Winter night

Outside the window, snow,
A woman in a hot bath
Overflowing.

— Nobuku Katsura

See the river flow
In a long unbroken line
On the field of snow.

— Boncho

Confined within doors
A priest is warming himself
Burning a Buddha statue.

— Natsume Soseki

Through snow,
Lights of homes
That slammed their gates on me.

— Buson
