Narrow Road (11) – Haiku – December 19, 2015

tiny lagoon
reflecting summer’s beauty
rain drops fall

Carpe Diem #881 following Basho into the deep north: Mount Atsumi; a hot day’s sun; Kisagata silk tree

A hot day’s sun
taken into the sea
by the Mogami River

Kisagata silk tree
is a Chinese beauty in the rain
a sleeping flower

© Basho (Tr. Jane Reichhold)

Kisagata ya ami ni Seishi ga nebu no hana

Kisagata rain
with the Chinese beauty asleep
a silk tree in bloom

© Basho (Tr. Jane Reichhold)

silk tree blossoms
in a soothing summer rain
trembling in silence
so fragile,
in a summer breeze

in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
