From Chevrefeuille:

This month it’s all about writing haiku in the way of Basho and in our CD-Specials I will introduce haiku written by Basho’s disciples (Shoomon) and in this CD-Special I love to tell you a little bit more about Morikawa Kyoroku (1656-1715). Here is a first haiku to introduce his writing skills to you:

kankin no ma wo asagao no sakari kana

ah! morning glories
are at their best while I chant
my morning prayers

© Morikawa Kyoroku (Tr. Chèvrefeuille)

Deep in the water,
softly moving his fins,
a carp, dreaming

© Morikawa Kyoroku (Tr. unknown)

A lot of beautiful haiku to use for your inspiration and here is my inspired haiku:

veiled moon
in her faint light we sail the lake
the call of plovers

© Chèvrefeuille

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
