This poem was written in response to ‘Carpe Diem#1016 picturing the haiku’, a post created by Chèvrefeuille as a tribute to Jane Reichhold, who died recently. Jane not only wrote beautiful poems of her own, but also produced wonderful translations of all of Basho’s haiku, and was a tremendous source of knowledge and encouragement to everyone who enjoys trying to make haiku of their own. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here.
