 They end their flight
one by one---
crows at dusk.

 Washing the hoe--
ripples on the water;
 far off, wild ducks.

My arm for a pillow

 My arm for a pillow,
I really like myself
under the hazy moon.

Evening wind

 Evening wind:
water laps
 the heron's legs.

The spring sea rising

 The spring sea rising
and falling, rising
 and falling all day.

Old well

 Old well,
a fish leaps--
 dark sound.

by Yosa Buson |


 STILL as the holy of holies breathes the vast,
Within its crystal depths the stars grow dim;
Fire on the altar of the hills at last
 Burns on the shadowy rim.

Moment that holds all moments; white upon
The verge it trembles; then like mists of flowers
Break from the fairy fountain of the dawn
 The hues of many hours.

Thrown downward from that high companionship
Of dreaming inmost heart with inmost heart,
Into the common daily ways I slip
 My fire from theirs apart.

by Yosa Buson |

His Holiness the Abbot

 His Holiness the Abbot
is shitting
in the withered fields.

Buying leeks

 Buying leeks
and walking home
 under the bare trees.

The behavior of the pigeon

 The behavior of the pigeon
is beyond reproach,
but the mountain cuckoo?
