A Field of Dried Grass

a field of dried grass
orchestra of grasshoppers
sending me to sleep

My response to Carpe Diem #1773 Kick Off: A Field of Dried Grass (Basho)

White rabbits!  Pinch, punch, first day of the month! In the first episode of November, Carpe Diem’s new theme is ‘Never Change A Winning Team’,
and our inspiration will come from haiku created by well-known and not so well-known haiku poets.

We are starting with Matsuo Basho’s final haiku – his Jisei:

tabi ni yande yume wa kareno wo kake meguru

falling sick on a journey
my dream goes wandering
over a field of dried grass

Basho (Tr. Chèvrefeuille)
