Autumn Haiku

Our 74th Poem of the Week is actually three poems - haiku by the 17th century Japanese master Basho (translated, and thus not with the correct syllabic count):

Blowing from the west,
Fallen leaves gather
In the east.


Along this road
Goes no-one,
This autumn eve.


The wind has brought
Enough fallen leaves
To make a fire.
