Crow's prophecy



a wandering crow
its old nest has become
a plum tree       ©Basho(tr. Jane Reichhold)

a burgundy fruit
ah, sweet & soft ...a dream       ©Humbird

oh, wondering crow
its luck brought the growth
of the nest

hidden in a crotch
near the trunk...the best

o, pondering crow
takes wing to top branch
of tall pruned tree

sees silver line netting-
and sets birds free!
