Chatting with Bashō

Post date: Aug 28, 2013 5:44:35 AM

A new addition to the “Poems About Haiku” section on the Poems by Others page is “Conversation with Bashō” by California poet Peggy Heinrich. I first encountered this poem on reading Peggy’s 2009 haiku collection Peeling an Orange, and I’m pleased that she’s consented for me to present her poem here. Now all we need are conversations with Buson, Issa, Shiki, and other Japanese masters!
