For this week’s Carpe Diem Haiku Family …
The goal of this new episode is to write/compose a haiku, in the classical way, about someone who is famous and who you, maybe, admire.
As a haiku-poet Basho is my role-model and I am admiring his haiku. So I have chosen to write a haiku about him.
There are lots of famous people … so it’s a tall order to write this haiku … but let’s see what Chèvrefeulle wrote:
brought his passion into my mind –
the sound of water
Of course! He’s written about Basho one of the most famous haiku poets of history:
frog jumps in
sound of water
walking down the trail
the buddhist monk stops to look
spiders weaving webs
