Lips too Chilled – Bashō Matsuo

Poor boy – leaves
moon-viewing
for rice-grinding.

*

Journey’s end –
still alive, this
autumn evening.

*

Morning-glory –
it, too,
turns from me.

At least, I still have autumn.

A lovely selection of poems. Better collections prevent me from giving this more than three stars. And a half.

three stars and a half
sounds about right on this quiet
summer morning

*

day of the super blue blood moon

  1. Thanks so much for visiting this almost forgotten page (I was rather busy and couldn’t spend much time on here). Heh, I wrote this on the day of the eclipse but posted it almost a month later.
    I’m glad you enjoyed Basho’s lovely musings and the picture of that spellbinding moon. 🙂
