And Now For a Little Haiku…

A morning beach walk
Emma bounds after the ball
a bird sings nearby

My haiku for this Tuesday is a remembrance of my girls’ getaway last week. Our two days at Harrison Hot Springs were a welcome break from our usual hectic, busy days. It was so pleasant to walk leisurely by the beach, and on the grassy paths with Emma, Corinne’s black lab exploring the myriad of unfamiliar scents. The best thing about the trip was reconnecting with Corinne and Chris. It will be great to get together again next year!

More about Haiku

I was searching for more trivia and interesting facts about Haiku to post on this blog post and I came across this YouTube video about Matuo Basho.

Basho was a famous Zen poet of Japan, and is considered to be one of the four masters of haiku.

 

A monk sips morning tea,
it’s quiet,
the chrysanthemum’s flowering.

Matsuo Basho  — Translated by Robert Hass
