Bird Feeder

Old wooden feeder—

hungry young squirrel nibbles

as chickadees watch.

Bird feeder viewing is picking up these days as new visitors drop by.   This week’s weekend-meditation post from Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, called Carpe Diem Universal Jane #14 Basho’s ‘Old Pond’, is a fascinating read for haiku writers and readers. I particularly enjoyed seeing the different ways Basho’s ‘Old Pond’ haiku has been translated.  The translation by Jane Reichhold is stunning.
