Windy-web spider

     What is your silent speaking . . .

Your unsung song?

Weeping . . .  willows

     Kneel here by the waterside

Mingling long green hair

Ah . . . morning-glory

    Glowing with the indigo

Of some mountain pool

Buson
 

 

 

 

The sunbeams stream forward,

    Dawn boys,

With shimmering shoes of yellow

...all kinds of clouds together,

Their heads upreared...

...Pulling white feathers

from their breasts, they went.

Native American, Papago
 

 

 

 

...The thunderbirds draw near us

in their mighty power.

Hear their voices!...

Native American, Chippewa

Two water lilies

    Shining serenely golden . . .

But if I held it . . .

    Could I touch the lightness of this

Flutter-butterfly?

In the golden room

    Frightened quick calligraphy . . .

Escaping swallow

The night was hot

    Stripped to the waist the snail

enjoyed the moonlight

A small garden

    Brimming with dew...

Half a gallon of it

Ah good Buddhist frog . . .

    Rising to a clearer light

By non-attachment

Joso
 

 

 

I will not forget

    This lonely savor of my life's

One little dewdrop

Basho
 

 

 

Elegant singer

    Would you further favor us

With a dance . . . O frog?

I tilt my head back

    To see white clouds and blue sky

I am falling up
