Lightning and Pampas Grass

lightning flash–
what I thought were faces
are plumes of pampas grass                 Basho (Tr. unknown)

My response to Carpe Diem #1671 Tan Renga Challenge Month May 2019 (18) lightning flash

We have arrived at the final episode of this May’s Tan Renga Challenge, which I have enjoyed. For this last episode, we have a haiku by Matsuo Basho, taken from his famous haibun, The Small Road into the Deep North.
