Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's springtime and finally the weather is becoming warm and a little more stable. It's a wonderful time to travel and have an exciting adventure, perhaps with good friends, which is what I did this last weekend! Many centuries ago, Basho also decided to take a trip in spring, not his first as we can see from his haiku.
So today let's peek into the life of Basho as he anticipates his next spring trip, perhaps contemplating travelling with Kawai Sora into the interior of Japan:
in the spring of this year
again on a journey
through bright fields of green
into the past
I hope you enjoyed the post and feel inspired to create your own original haiku based on Basho's poem, have fun! Ciao, Bastet
