The Milky Way.

For this week’s challenge I chose a poem by the greatest master of haiku: Matsuo Bashō.

During the journey that would result in his masterpiece, The Narrow Road to the Deep North, Basho stopped at Izumo Point on the Japan Sea and gazed out to Sado Island which, at that time, was infamous as a place of exile.
