Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Here it is our last episode in our third Carpe Diem Theme Week "Magnolia Blossoms, haiku by Soseki Natsume".
I have tried to introduce to you Soseki Natsume (1867 - 1916) and the beauty of his haiku. For closing this 3rd CD-Theme Week I have another nice haiku by Soseki, but I also love to share a little bit of background on him and his relation to Shiki.
laugh, not cry
sing under the full moon

leaving only the fifth story visible—
scattered by autumn leaves
the old pond
