Locusts Fly Low

locusts fly low
over rice paddies
in the dim sunlight                             Masaoka Shiki

low buzz of devastation
a dark storm cloud of hunger           Kim M. Russell, 14th September 2018

Today’s haiku is by Masaoka Shiki, who gave haiku its name and died in 1902 at the age of 34.
