fans of autumn

long before daybreak
the local rooster
starts warming up










rooster sil


autumn field–
two sides of the same flock
taking off, landing

a breeze! 

a draft!

the window fan stirs debate

  1. Wine in general can be either a cure for or a cause of “blue states.” It all depends on who’s blue, and why. “Real wine is red,” whatever your state.

    On poetical matters, David, you might be interested in the examples of Basho as a subject of translation at Jonathan Mayhew’s weblog, Bemsha Swing. The subject first arose in this post on September 12, and continues on upward. Enlighten me in my occidental ignorance: are there connections between Basho and your man Issa?

  3. On this we agree (even in an election year!): real wine is red wine!
    Thank you for the pointer to the Basho discussion.  Basho and Issa are universally considered to be two of the “four most prominent haiku poets of Japanese tradition:”

  5. Head’s up: I see that today, on top of all that Basho, Jonathan Mayhew has found an entire Issa haiku hidden within another poem. Details here. One of his friendly spiders is involved.
