Food Haiku

A man that eats
his meals amidst morning glories—
that’s what I am!

–Matsuo Bashō

Matsuo Bashō was the most famous poet of the Edo period in Japan. During his lifetime, Bashō was recognized for his works in the collaborative haikai no renga form; today, after centuries of commentary, he is recognized as a master of brief, clear haiku.
