Haiku, For You

Tonight’s post is simply a haiku written by Ransetsu, an immensely talented poet whose work is posted, luckily enough (for me), on my new wall calendar for this year (unfortunately, time constraints prevent me from making a longer post).  While not all of its contents relate to the winter season here in Chicagoland – I have not heard bird song in quite some time – it is beautiful none the less.

 “New Year’s Day —
the clouds are gone and sparrows
are telling each other tales.

–Ransetsu (1653-1708)
