Here at the frontier, the leaves fall like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians, there are still two cups at my table.


Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Basho's Frog

In his famous haiku, Basho wrote:

The old pond,A frog jumps in:Plop!

I wrote:

Basho's frog went plop!
and never heard from again.
A snapping turtle.
