Basho Memorial Day (Basho-Ki) Japan



It is cold and rainy outside today, but I fell like christmas and new year have come again with this wonderful Basho Daruma find !!


Now Lary tells me:

Indeed, the year has not yet drawn to its close if Christams and New Year's Day have come again! I am reminded of a haiku of Basho's, and a haiku in response by Buson:

toshi kurenu kasa kite waraji hakinagara

The year draws to its close:
I am still wearing
My kasa and straw sandals.


Basho, trans. Blyth

bashoo satte sono nochi imada toshi kurezu

Since Basho left the world,
Not yet has
"The year drawn to its close."


or

Basho left us,
And since then,
The year has not drawn to its close.


Buson, trans. Blyth
