the first blossoms of spring
A couple of days ago I came across another poem by Morikawa Kyoroku which I particularly liked.
Morikawa Kyoroku (1656-1715) studied with the great Basho for ten months, who was the one who chose his nickname Kyoroku because he excelled in all six (roku) art forms: calligraphy, painting, spear, sword, horse riding and haiku.
