As I drove into work today, I saw some children at play. And now while I’m having a bite to eat, couldn’t resist this quick little diversion before I get back to the very serious business of haiku.

I understand that Basho, Buson and the others would often paraphrase Buddhist texts and sayings in their own haiku. When my appointed hour comes, I know Issa will defend me, or at least the poet Senryū Karai.
