Basho_by_Hokusai-small.jpg

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
