Carpe Diem On The Trail With Basho Encore *falling willow leaves*

This week on the special feature “Encore” of Carpe Diem our inspiration is a haiku, written by the haiku master Matsuo Basho:

* * *
to sweep the garden
before I leave
falling willow leaves

* * *

I tried not to wander too far from the same mood and spirit in mine:

* * *
empty train station-
the chestnut in my pocket
still warm from his palm

* * *
