Japanese Love Haiku

I usually write my own haiku, but this week I was reading a book called "Japanese Haiku" printed in 1956 from the local library. Here are a few that spoke to me:

In these dark waters
drawn up from
my frozen well...
glittering of spring

Arise from sleep, old cat
and with great yawns
and stretchings...
amble out for love

Moon so bright for love
come closer, quilt...
my passionate cold!

Ah, unrequited love
now elevate your
and keen
Tom-cat, to the moon!
