Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Today we share haiku on Wase (early rice). Rice comes in several varities and therefore there are several kigo on rice. "Wase" is a mid-autumn kigo and can refer to the flowering of early rice, the fragrance of early rice or harvesting of early rice. So this kigo, you can use in several ways.
|Wase (early rice)|
upon small grasses
falls the autumn sun.
Or this one by Issa, from another angle:
the geese depart
coming to bloom in autumn
Ah! that fragrance ...
