Renga with Bashō #2

#Haiku Happenings #2: Janice’s latest #renga with Basho for Carpe Diem!

Ontheland

still alive

under the slightness of my hat

enjoying the coolness

©️Bashō (1644-1694)

stones glisten with morning dew

birds awake as ghosts depart

©️2018 Ontheland

early summer rain

the green of a rock cypress

lasting how long

©️Bashō

an artist under the ledge

mixes paint and prays for sun

©️Ontheland

rainy season

sea glow lights held up

by the night watchman

©️Bashō

spirits of the mist wander

whiffs of woodsmoke call them home

©️Ontheland

the blue sea

in waves smelling of saké

tonight’s full moon

©️Bashō

a rabbit sails in moonlight

are there answers in his pot?

©️Ontheland

logged tree

see the larger cut end is

a harvest moon

©️Bashō

forests reaped like fields of corn

pockets fill with golden coin

©️Ontheland

on a bare branch

a crow settled down

autumn evening

©️Bashō

still alive, planet quivers

spinning towards destiny

©️Ontheland
