that rotten smell?
deep inside the forest
the autumn



Somehow I will admit that here is something familiar with Santoka's two-liner:

that sound
the rain?

Hi Juhani,

I can smell it! Maybe you mean this certain smell which tell us: there are mushrooms! Astonishing how this haiku is tickling my nose!

Best wishes
Rudi

Hello Rudi;
Sure some mushrooms. We had some cold nights already, so no more mushrooms, I'm afraid.

Rotten twigs -
a weary birch
still proud

An echo of Santoka is nothing to apologize for.
