Haiku about storm…

Some say haiku come from old songs. If you extract words from these wakas (Japanese songs) you have an haiku ! Sadaiye collected some of these songs in a book…

Chiru hana wo
Oikakete Yuku
Arashi kana

The falling blossoms:
Look at them, it is the storm
That is chasing them.


Found in Haiku and Modernist Poetics, by Hakutani Y.
