A nipping wind!

tearing into the rock,

the voice of water.

“But why now!”

You will ask, awake

in autumn night.

photo friday: delicious!

Seeing one finger, hearing a frog jump into the water, experiencing the sunrise, washing one’s face in the early morning - anything will serve as a medium of realization if the mind is serene*

photo friday: end of summer

Beneath a tree,

autumn wind shows itself

in a single leaf.

photo friday: on the road

They sowed a whole field,

And only then did I leave

Saigyo’s willow tree. ~Basho*

In 1684 Basho set out on a journey that occasioned the first of five narratives that stand as milestones in his career…Of the five travel diaries describing his journeys, the last, Oku no Hosomichi, written in 1689, is not only the best but is considered one of the major texts of classical Japanese literature.*
