trickles from icicles
time floats away
Birds leave footprints
in this powder puff dream
I pinch myself
Oh my lonely lap
Winter’s icy breath chased you
Now we both tremble
Contains all four seasons’ voice
Wild poetry stirs
Summer’s scorched burnt tip
Pierces autumn’s bronzed winter
Till quenched by cool spring
Have a go!

Walking though the world
Hand in hand with nature’s dilemma
A cool breeze still blows
On close inspection
Golden poppies bear torn wings
Butterflies in spring
A small tribute to Basho, a great inspiration to me. He published his haiku under several names, including Tosei, or “Green Peach,” out of respect for the Chinese poet Li Po, whose name translates to “White Plum.” After a gift of basho trees from one student in 1680, the poet began to write under the name Basho.
Green Peach’s words bloom
Under guidance of White Plum
Basho trees are born
