Haiku By Buson

Light of the moon

moves west, flowers’ shadows

creep eastward

A Poem a Day – Haiku

The following is a poem by Yosa Buson (1716-1783). My painting was inspired by his haiku. Buson was a very good painter and made a living at it. Buson published many poems in anthologies.  By the time he reached the age of fifty-five he was known to be the leader of Kyoto poets and the best of modern Haiku poets.
