Sumac saplings blaze,

A miniature forest glows –

On last week’s green lawn.


About Basho Barr

Inspired by the great Japanese Haiku master, Matsuo Basho, I try to capture a daily moment in a small but perfectly formed Haiku.

    I like the irony of the autumn leaves on summer’s lawn.

      Thanks Michael. Autumn is very slow and late this year, so the sumac is one of the only strong autumn colours around. Last week I didn’t notice the green sumac on the lawn as I drove past it, but this week it really stood out with its vibrant colours.
