Four haiku

Just for fun, inspired by reading some classic haiku (Basho, Issa, Buson), I wrote these.

Yellow leaves floating
on the green slow-moving river;
where will they end up?


Make the dough early;
it may take longer to rise
on this cool fall day


Parking enforcement.
Can there be a job less fun?
Yes, but very few.


In baseball and life
it’s the little things that count;
wins losses ups downs


These are not the ones submitted to Issa's Untidy Hut in response to the Basho Haiku Challenge. Those are better!

Very nice, esp. the second.
