I am blog hopping today at

Carpe Diem Special #148, Kikaku's "above the sea"

...Kikaku has almost the same attraction to the beauty of nature as Basho had and he (Kikaku) has written wonderful haiku. Later in his life Kikaku fell in love with the city and his haiku changed dramatically, but were all beauties. Here are two haiku written by Kikaku to inspire you all.

shuts me out for the night

finally home
I shut the gate of my garden
ah! the Honeysuckle
