life plans

trailing the sun

few birds twitter

this cold November night

a shift to C minor

Inspired by November with Basho Day 2:

Very Early on the twenty-seventh morning of the third moon, under a predawn haze, transparent moon barely visible, Mount Fuji just a shadow, I set out under the cherry blossoms of Ueno and Yanaka. When would I see them again?…

Spring passes

and the birds cry out– tears

in the eyes of fishes
