Poetry 2022

I’m going to do poetry posts for a while. I think we’ll need it in 2022! Next up, I’ll name some of my favorite poets, including some of their poems.


In praise of Matsuo Basho, the famous Japanese haiku poet:

Frog, jump in the pond,

when the ripples are no more,

are you in the pond?

The original Basho haiku:

古池や 蛙飛び込む 水の音

Furuike ya/ Kawazu tobikomu/ Mizu no oto

The old pond

A frog leaps in.

Sound of the water.
