On The Trail With Basho Encore 4 – June 13, 2015

shizu kasa ya iwa ni shimi iru semi no koe

such stillness
piercing the rock
a cicada’s voice

morning stillness
ripped by thunder
the blackbird sings

morning stillness
the blackbird and robin play
on the rooftops

§§

ripped by thunder
electricity in the air
in early morning

§§

the blackbird sings
in triumph to his lady
rain drops fall
