The Gift of Poetry !


Cadeau , Chants ,

Bon Anniversaire ,

Patisserie !


In attempt of writing a HAIBUN , I explored the original creator of this genre of poetry , Matsuo Basho . He chose to live his life of simplicity as a monk and his work was zen influenced ,

Kudos ,

Matsuo Basho ,

For giving the world the gift of haibun poetry !

He has the greatest collection of HAIBUN poetry , “The Narrow Road to the Deep North”. Through his poetry we experience ,

The changing seasons ,

The smell of the rain ,

The beauty of a waterfall ,

The brightness of the moon
