.....of deep meaning; of great and broadly inclusive significance
I have been reading
"The Essential Haiku
versions of Basho, Buson & Issa"
I am especially taken with the writings of
Kobayashi Issa (1763 - 1827)
a master of Haiku and other forms of poetry
who unfortunately led quite a sad life
and yet wrote awesome poetic thoughts.
This prose is taken from his journal
"From A Year Of My Life"
written in 1819
"Not far from the village of Shiba someone caught a baby crow - no bigger than a lump of coal - and put it in a cage in front of the house. That night I heard the mother flying back and forth above the house, crying over and over again in the darkness.
Over and over
the she-crow's voice
crying in the dark."
