I came across Basho, the Haiku Master, through Osho's discourses and Sujatha's writings. Haiku describes the experience of a person at that moment (Whereas some are writing now just to follow the number of words it requires). I didn't know that Basho had travelled so much until I read this article from "National Geographic Magazine", Feb. edition.
Excellent photographs of Michael Yamashita adds beauty..
