In celebration of National Poetry Month and Poem in Your Pocket Day, 2011, I'm posting a few of my favorite Basho haikus.  You can put them in your pocket to share throughout the day if you'd like.

As a bonus prompt for you:  Try writing a haiku! 


Spring morning marvel
lovely nameless little hill
on a sea of mist

The old pond
A frog jumps in
The sound of water

Orchid breathing
incense into
butterfly wings.
