My garden Seseragi was inspired by Rakushisha "The Hut of Fallen Persimmons" that was owned by Basho's disciple Kyorai. Basho was a poet who visited Rakushisha three times. In Western eyes he is known as the haiku poet. He is the archetype of Japanese poets and poetry. AWAKE AT NIGHT Awake at night-- the sound of the water jar cracking in the cold. ................ FIRST DAY OF SPRING First day of spring-- I keep thinking about the end of autumn. Basho
