Travelling the Narrow Roads with Basho

Go where
The wind blows
Far into the interior
Of the mind
Of your haiku

Then beyond
Its borders
Through towns
Pass common folks
Over seas
And in love
With your
Companion
Only to return
To reality
That is the Edo.

the interpreter

life
is the interpretation
of time
and space

the longer the life
the more accurate
the interpretation
is supposed to be

but some die
without fully
interpreting
the meaning

time
is lost upon them
and equally
space
disappears
like into some kind
of mental black hole
called “their” mind

of which
the mind actually
isn’t a self as
conventionally
believed

but a grand illusion
a fantastic
misinterpretation
of life
and therefore
of what
one should do
“now” and
with “whom”
or with “what”
