HAIKU BY BUSON
A Summer Haiku by the 18th century Japanese poet Buson from the collection Zen Haiku, selected and translated by Jonathan Clements. London: Frances Lincoln, 2000
Across the summer stream
With such joy
My sandals in my hand
I love haiku as a form, the dewdrop perfection of it.
Delightfully in the moment of summer. I am compelled to cross a stream barefoot today!
