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

         Bashō

tonight's moon--
no mountain not like
the ones back home

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.
