Troiku Challenge 2019: Day 11: The Wind of Fuji


the wind of Fuji
I've brought on my fan
a gift from Edo

the wind of Fuji
cool breezes are most welcome
move the clouds along

I've brought on my fan
a memory of breezes
blowing through my mind

a gift from Edo
a city I once studied
when I was quite young

~Basho & Cie~


Notes:
The "sleigh" of this Troiku was written by Matsuo Basho (1644 - 1694). The three "horses" can be blamed on me.
I have never been to Japan. The only places I have been outside the United States are Tijuana, Mexico, and Alberta, Canada. The last place I went outside of Colorado was Arizona in 2003.
I do not have the money to travel and with my health problems, it's probably not the best idea in any case.

  1. Japan (old Japan) is somewhere I would love to see. It wont be a happening thing though.

    1. Maybe in our dreams, I suppose. Or astral projection, if you believe in such things. (I kind of do. We'll just say I've seen some shit.)
      We studied Japan and Holland in the fourth grade. I always wanted to see both.
