Carpe Diem #1534 Yaha … one of Basho’s ten greatest disciples (crossroads)

asajimo ya shi no sune omou yuki no kure

morning frost –
I think of the shins of my master
on a night with snow

chikara na ya hiza o kakaete fuyugomori

no strength left –
I wrap my arms around my knees
in winter solitude

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

weary
of winter solitude
this frosty night

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

snowy night
rubbing warmth to my arms
missing you
