Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
I am a day late with publishing this new episode of our special feature "On The Trail With Basho Encore" in which I share haiku by Basho just for fun ... he has written such wonderful haiku ... I just have to share them ...
piercing the rock
a cicada's voice
Ah! that sound
the song of a Nightingale
deepens the silence
shelter for the night -
a Nightingale sings
The above haiku is part of a haibun which I wrote titled "My Narrow Road".
I hope you did like this episode of "Encore" and that it will inspire you all to write an all new haiku.
This episode of "Encore" is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until next Friday June 19th at noon (CET).
