Yes, the birds know the seasons are changing, before we do even.

Nice one Magyar, who would not argue with ones shadow at moonrise?

Rudi Pfaller said...

Now I understand that the wings and shadows of the wings are arguing in the moonlight. Sometimes I need my time to see the thing I didn't see in reality. We always should take our time when reading a haiku.
Well done!

Best wishes
Rudi

Continuing the rain - theme:

squall of rain --
shadows
flattening out

mmmmmm.. hay ka na öö#¤&.

But a nice idea, anyway? ?_)

- You know Japanese "kana", a word which quite often is the last word in a waka or tanka and in haiku;

I think that this "kana" means nearly nothing, could be translated as "well" or "I think" etc.

Very often this is perhaps just to make last line 5 - syllabses (or sounds)... ?
