Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's my pleasure to "restart" an old special feature we have had here at Carpe Diem haiku Kai. Maybe you can remember that special feature or maybe you can remember one of the latest Tokubetsudesu episodes
nageki ya kochi no
|Matsuo Basho (1644-1694), my sensei|
sadly spring winds cannot open
a poem bag
For this "restarting" Utabukuro episode I have chosen a beautiful haiku by my sensei, Matsuo Basho.

With this haiku came a preface, which was very common in Basho's time:
|Waterfall of Flowers|
And here is my haiku inspired on this beauty by Basho, my sensei, I hope he will like it.
