Haiku For Carpe Diem #309, Bashoo (Bananaplant)

The Carpe Diem haiku prompt today is Bashoo (Bananaplant). We learned that the great haiku master Basho took his name from the banaplant after being given one as a gift.

Smiles, love and laughter

  1. Awesome haiku JRB …. I like the references to Basho and other classical haiku-poets, but I also see the reference to the modern haikuists, because in someway we are all disciples of the great haiku-masters.


  2. Wonderful.. we can all be basho by sitting beneath a banana plant.

    Writing haiku is a slippery slope?
