Catriona's War - Jean Grainger - A Short Summary and Review

Basho: The Complete Haiku - Matsuo Basho - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Basho: The Complete Haiku:

Hokku from the Edo Period.

My favorite Matsuo Basho quote from the book:

"He drinks morning tea. The monk is at peace with all. Chrysanthemums bloom."




Questions to ponder while reading Basho: The Complete Haiku:

How did these make you feel?

Do poems need to be lengthy to contain meaning?

My review of  Basho: The Complete Haiku:

I love these!

So simple, yet so deep.

Forever re-readable.
