A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Dear friends of MLMM,
Welcome at a new episode of Heeding Haiku …. This is Paloma, filling in for Chèvrefeuille. Our deepest sympathy goes out to our host and his family during this time of loss.
For your inspiration this week, I offer the following video with five haiku by Matsuo Basho:
In case you cannot access YouTube, here are the five haiku:
at the house of a family whose child has died….
bending low – the joints,
the world all upside down –
bamboo under the snow
clouds now and then
give rest to people
viewing the moon
the stillness –
seeping into the rocks
the old pond –
a frog jumps in
the rough sea
extending to Sado Isle
the Milky Way
And here is a haiku from our host Chèvrefeuille:
after the darkness
I am longing for the young leaves
and cherry blossoms
