five New Year haiku by Masaoka Shiki

New Year’s greetings

with a plum branch

in hand

the sky draws near

such a bright sunrise

New Year’s Day

New Year’s Day

has come —

quiet streets

The year begins

on New Year’s day

our life is Now

the stars vanished

and then —

five-colored New Year’s mist
