Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's time for a new episode of "On The Trail With Basho Encore". This week I have a nice haiku by Basho about moon-viewing. Also a great one, but not so well known. As we know, the moon is a season word for autumn. So this one is an autumn verse written in 1689.
a journey of moon-viewing
as the night flows into the day
sun and moon together
sun and moon dancing
as the night flows into the day -
a skylark’s song
This episode is open for your submissions at noon (CET) and will remain open until July 23rd at noon (CET). Have fun!
