naviarhaiku303 – Whenever I speak

Whenever I speak
My lips are
chilled— Autumn wind.

mono ieba
kuchibiru samushi
aki no kaze

Autumn has finally arrived here in Italy as well, so this week I opted for this Fall themed haiku by Basho. My understanding is that this poem has become a well-known Japanese proverb, meaning “It is better to leave many things unsaid”.

Seven days to make music in response to the assigned haiku: to participate visit https://www.naviarrecords.com/about/naviar-haiku
