Haiku by Matsuo Basho, April 5

Matsuo Basho (1644-1694) wrote during the Edo Period in Japan. He is considered the master poet of the time. In celebration of National Poetry Month, this blog is hosting the 3rd Annual Community Haiku Project. Readers are invited to send no more than two haiku at a time for consideration to info@loompress.com. Traditional haiku and improvisational Western haiku (say a lot in three lines) are welcomed. This blog reserves the right to select the haiku for publication, but we are very democratic.—PM


         The crow

walks along there

            as if it were tilling the field.
