Indicative

dampness describes

concealed whirlpools underneath

overthrowing dreams

Set of haikus in the prompt

falling sick on a journey
my dream goes wandering
over a field of dried grass *

lying down
with quilts over the head
such a cold night

a rainy day
the autumn world
of a border town

© Matsuo Basho (1644-1694) (Tr. Jane Reichhold)
