Here’s another poem by Tan Taigi, also author of the inspiring haiku we posted last week. The poem we publish today was translated by Michael Haldane.
Tan Taigi was a haiku poet of the Edo period. He was a wanderer for most of his life and admired by Yosa Buson for his ability to transcend his eclectic and unconventional lifestyle with sublime poetry.
