Long distance travellers:

Warm African haze,

Drops dust on cars parked below –

Where birch leaves unfold.

I should explain this one a bit. At the moment, the UK is experiencing a haze of warm air from the Sahara, carrying a lot of dust with it. I like the idea of a little bit of Africa coming to visit me, when I cannot go there. The layer of dust on the cars fascinates me. The unfolding birch leaves locate it seasonally and in space – somewhere a lot further north!

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.
