Haiku for a Spring Day

Whitecaps on the bay:
A broken signboard banging
In the April wind.
Richard Wright (collected in Haiku: This Other World, Arcade Publishing, 1998)
Richard Wright may not be the first poet you think of when thinking of the centuries old Japanese art of Haiku; but he wrote over 4,000 of the structured poems towards the end of his life.
