Nikolay Grankin (Russia)

late autumn
a puppy catches
the first snowflakes

Comment: a lively and fresh haiku set in late autumn (boshū 暮秋) which contrasts the irreversible withering of nature in the fist ku to the inexhaustible energies of the puppy (koinu 子犬) catching the ‘first snowflakes’ in the second one. An amused vision of reality (okashimi おかしみ) linked to the cycle of the seasons that is expressed through a simple and immediate language.
