Matsuo Basho´s flowers

A bee

A bee
staggers out
of the peony

a field of cotton
a field of cotton...
as if the moon
had flowered

a monk sips morning tea
a monk sips morning tea
it´s quite,
the chrysanthemum´s flowering.

when the winter chrysanthemums go
when the winter chrysanthemums go,
there´s nothing to talk about
but radishes
