triple challenge

Carpe Diem #885 without you: Stone Mountain, at Yamanaka, from this day on




the scent of early rice

coming in from the right
the Ariso Sea

scent of roses
drifts in the morning breeze
a Christmas gift

the tomb also shakes
my weeping voice is
the autumn wind


© Basho (Tr. Jane Reichhold)

grey ashes
caught by the wind
a mother's grief

©  Janice 'petra domina' Adcock

autumn coolness
each peeling with our hands
melons and eggplant


© Basho (Tr. Jane Reichhold)

red more red
in spite of the indifferent sun
an autumn breeze


© Basho (Tr. Jane Reichhold)

(note: normally the autumn wind was thought of as white)

sun baked leaves
lay a bronzed path
a still autumn day

a lovely name
at Little Pines blows
bush clover and thatch reeds

Yellowstone Falls
the pine roots gripping
smells of sulfur

how pitiful
under the armored helmet
a cricket


© Basho (Tr. Jane Reichhold)

guts and glory
wind blows across the field
ancient battle sounds

©  Janice 'petra domina' Adcock

seen with my eyes
white chrysanthemums
again I saw them


© Kasugi Issho (1652-1688)

once more
into the pond jumps
the old frog
