Haiku of Richard Wright(60)

Sun is glinting on
A washerwoman's black arms
In cold creek water.



Swimming out of the grass
― My bloody arms.

■Wright's haiku cannot get out of a common-sense world. I have examined his 60 haiku, and I found out he didn't have so many fine haiku. From now on, after I preselect his good haiku, I'll examine it. In the case of Hohsai, I have preselected his interesting haiku. It's natural I tend to appreciate his haiku.
