Autumn Chill

“When I speak
My lips feel cold –
The autumn wind.”

–   Basho

Caught up in the beauty of Autumn

Won’t you come and see
loneliness? Just one leaf
from the kiri tree.

The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers. – Basho

Nothing in the cry

of cicadas suggests they

are about to die

 

From The Essential Basho, translated by Sam Hamill

"Featherheart"
was chosen as
the name for
this blog
because when
I remember
to keep my
heart light as
a feather,
life is much
easier.
