Read these two Japanese death Haiku and write what you think two of them are saying about life and death.  Prepare to write a haiku (due next tuesday) about your thoughts on either birth or death.

On a journey, ill:                                 
my dream will go wandering                   
over withered fields.  

-Basho                        

Blow if you will,                                
autumn wind...all the flowers                          
have faded, fallen.                                

- Gansan

Earth, wood, and metal...                                
although my breathing ceases               
time and tide go on.                            

-Atsujin
