Larry Barak & Aditya Bahl: Wednesday Haiku, Week 66

Photo by Elliot K.

in syncopation
with the hooting of the owl –
dripping tap
        Larry Barak

Bashō - Horohoroto

mountain behind mountain behind mountain
petals of a rose

                         Aditya Bahl

The poem in the above artwork by Bashō may be translated:

quietly, quietly
yellow mountain roses fall -
sound of the rapids

tonight's moon--
no mountain not like
the ones back home  
translated by David G. Lanoue

That street (sm)art owl sure gives great directions ~ scroll downward to enter the fathomless hoot and drip, rapids' roar mountain after mountain, and by the end of this Wednesday Haiku posting, the beyond of it, altogether.
