BOOK OF DAYS: A POET AND NATURALIST TRIES TO FIND POETRY IN EVERY DAY

January 1, 2016: Featuring "guest writer" Buson

Kristen Lindquist

The 18th century Japanese poet Buson was one of the "Three Tenors" of classical haiku (along with Basho and Issa). His New Year's poem here, translated by Sam Hamill, highlights his sense of humor. It also seemed a fun way to kick off a new year of my daily haiku blog, because I can so relate to that smug sense of self-satisfaction.

written, now self-satisfied,
O haiku poet!
