Scrolls rolled at his feet He sits, watching life unfold His pen drips beauty

I wish I knew who Basho was, this gift to him is to be coveted by heroes and kings ... great write. You are indeed his greatest student yet, the Plato of his Socrates.

Wow! Sounds like Jesus! Super write. (Oops! I guess you can tell that I don't know who Basho is.) Jesus was my first thought when I read it. I could see him there in a room sitting comfortably with finished scrolls around his feet while He wrote more. Recording His beautiful words of love and comfort to help us humans. I wonder if He did. We know that His disciples did.
