Matsuo Basho and others / Haikus

Haiku 1
Miura Chora 

Get out of my road
and allow me to plant these
bamboos, Mr. Toad.

Haiku 2

A morning glory
Twined round the bucket:
I will ask my neighbor
    for water.

Haiku 3
Matsuo Basho 

The old pond;
A frog jumps in:
Sound of water.

Haiku 4
Kobayashi Issa 
A dragonfly!
The distant hills
Reflected in his eyes.
