Bashō [via Google and Bing translators]

***************

vanishing soldier
ruins of morning glory
military eyes

***************

frost white tears of ice
passionate perfume minutes
incense preciousness

***************

lonely moon of the
gray-headed lapwing carving
a deserted tomb

***************

pillow fleas . . . urine
of horses . . . Yokohama
prostitute trouble

***************

octopus summer . . .
dream frogs leap in straw sandals
dive with bamboo socks

***************

enter rock silence . . .
voice of the cicada tends
the forked eye of spring

***************

go this road without
me . . . autumn disease journey
planting willow fields

***************
