Basho, No 9.

 

 

Moonlight slanting

through all this

long bamboo grove….

and nightingale song.

Each wave turning over

leaves a trail of tiny shells

and petals of bush clover.

Basho, No7

 

 

An ancient pond

a frog jumps in

the splash of water

Having tumbled off

his grass blade…

the firefly

buzzes up again.

Hear those baby mice

huddled in their

nest….peeping

to the sparrowlets

 

Basho, no4

 

 

the sea darkens-

the voice of the wild ducks

are faintly white.

Basho, no3

 

 

bush-clover flowers-

they sway but do not drop

their beads of dew.

 

Basho, no2

 

 

a clear waterfall-

into the ripples

fall green pine-needles.

 

Basho, no1

 

 

looking carefully,

a shepherd’s purse is blooming

under the fence.
