Basho

Chèvrefeuille's Gift to You to Celebrate Our First Luster Of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai #2 "Use That Quote"




Here is the quote for your inspiration:

“There is nothing you can see that is not a Bashoflower; there is nothing you can think that is not the moon”. Matsuo Basho


Basho tree (banana plant)


basho flower
producing sweet nourishment
words from the master


hidden in the trunk
softly flowing kimono
tender Basho shoots

    1. I am such a fan of bananas. I never knew the tree itself could be used to produce different grades of fabrics. Now I may need a banana kimono! Glad you enjoyed! Namaste janicexxx
