Today, I’m going to put two aspects together in order to write my morning Haiku and Waka … one aspect is inspired by our host at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai with his daily intro to Basho (please drop by and have a look at the post HERE) and from our young host at Heeding Haiku with HA (which seems to point in the same direction … but you can read his post HERE).
Here is the haiku Misty showers (with preface):
It rained the day I passed through the barrier, and all the mountains were hidden in the clouds.
the day one cannot see Mount Fuji
it is more attractive

Basho wrote several haiku about Mount Fuji I have found another nice one:
The wind from Mt. Fuji
I put it on the fan.
