Haiku-Basho ca. 1679

Turbulent the sea
Stretching across to Sado
The Milky Way

Basho juxtaposes the turbulent sea with the (seemingly) tranquil Milky Way, making the point that the storm has passed, but the effects remain. It is also a delightful linkage between our own mysterious ocean and the unknown frontiers of our home galaxy. JRD
