The moon is clear
Lake Biwa
First-class river

月涼し琵琶湖は一級河川

Water lily blooms
Monet's green is
Profound

睡蓮や深遠なるモネの緑

In Mobius strip
Swear eternity
Under the spring sky

メビウスに永遠を誓ひ春の空

Large water turbine
Creates wind
In early spring

大水車早春に風を起こす

Shade in summer
Mountain stream along the rock
Pure white

岩伝ふ渓流白し夏木陰

Overgrown
Now abandoned
Ore sorting yard

夏草や今は廃墟の選鉱場

In the spring
Freshly picked in the morning
Cucumbers and tomatoes

湧水に朝採りの胡瓜とトマト

First blacksmith
The hammering sound
High-pitched

初鍛冶や槌打つ音の甲高し

Welcome you
With snow and
Pottery raccoon dog belly

出迎へは雪と狸の太鼓腹

Autumn ropeway
Mountains and lakes
Shining

秋のロープウェイ照り映ゆ山と湖

Ms. Masako Betsuyaku kindly and delightedly presented her favorite photo to the World Haiku Series 2020.

It is a photo of Karahashi Bridge over Lake Biwa: 琵琶湖にかかる瀬田の唐橋

Profile:
Now I live in Shiga prefecture, where Lake Biwa is located.
I made a haiku about the scenery of Lake Biwa.
I'm a beginner in English haiku, so there may be mistakes, but I'd be happy if you could get a feel for the scenery of Shiga prefecture.
Thank you for reading.
