Matsuo Basho..on the poet’s trail

The caterpillar

A caterpillar,
this deep in fall–
still not a butterfly.

On the poet’s trail

Matsuo Bashō Poetry 

Matsuo Basho Paperback – 1982

Four Haiku
Spring:
A hill without a name
Veiled in morning mist.

The beginning of autumn:
Sea and emerald paddy
Both the same green.

The winds of autumn
Blow: yet still green
The chestnut husks.

A flash of lightning:
Into the gloom
Goes the heron’s cry.
