A Flash of Lightening

A Flash of Lightening

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge # 103 Basho’s “a flash of lightning!”


inazuma ya yami no kata yuku goi no koe

a flash of lightning—
passing through the darkness
a night heron’s scream                           © Basho (1644-1694)

my soul searches the blackness
my hand reaches toward you
