autumn words –
forever remembered
in shadow

Linked to Carpe Diem On the Trail with Basho Encore #6: Autumn Night.  In this haiku Basho remembers attempting to keep the peace between two of his followers:

aki no yo o uchi kuzushitaru hanashi kana

autumn night
dashed to bits
in conversation

Basho
(Tr. Jane Reichhold)

And here is our host’s response:

on the porch
a moment of silence
the sound of rain
