among the mountain laurel –
Linked to Carpe Diem #744: River Breeze, where this haiku from Basho is our inspiration:
kawa kaze ya usu gaki ki taru yu suzumi
a river breeze
the one wearing a light persimmon robe
enjoying the coolness
(Tr. Jane Reichhold)
In this haiku, Basho is both part of the haiku and slightly apart from the haiku – as he is the one in the light persimmon robe.
