Basho’s Moon

Waxing Crescent Moon

Trees as close as the moon, rustling. 
You are farther away than the trees. 
Silent.
                    Basho
Thanks to Ulrich for the poem.

  1. the poem, stark and beautiful, the moon and the night, stark and beautiful.
    And who sang first, the moon sang to the earth and the trees sang back.
    and the singing keeps the connection alive
