Recuerda Mi Corazon haiku my heart - 'toast'


AND
Carpe Diem #937


kite mo miyo jiube ga haori hana goromo

put it on to try
in-vest yourself
in a flowered robe
© Basho (Tr. Jane Reichhold) And this is what she tells about the background of this haiku:The "jiube ga haori" is a padded vest. The "hana goromo" is a flowered robe worn for viewing blossoms. "Haori" sounds similar to "gaori", which means "to surrender to the beauty of flowers", and "kite" can mean both "come" or "wear". In this haiku Basho uses the haiku writing technique "pun" it's a kind of technique to bring a kind of joke into the haiku

sand rushes around on the beach

Such a wonderful song in egg Benedict ... love the thought of such breakfasts.

C.C. said...

I like how 'toast' could have a double meaning here.....perhaps the toast that went with your eggs as well as the toast to the week?

Sherry Blue Sky said...

This made me smile, the image of the eggs toasting the new week. LOL.
