Carpe Diem Time Machine *rough sea*

This time on Carpe Diem Time Machine we are looking back at a haiku, written by Basho. It was a part of his haibun “The Narrow Road to the Deep North”:

* * *
the rough sea
flowing toward Sado Isle
the River of Heaven

* * *

Here’ s my attempt not to wander too far from the same mood and spirit:

* * *
an empty boat
drifting along moonlit path
to the other shore

* * *

That’s what sailing is, a dance, and your partner is the sea. And with the sea you never take liberties. You ask her, you don’t tell her. You have to remember always that she’s the leader, not you. You and your boat are dancing to her tune. /M.Morpurgo/
