oops. I posted from the wrong address.

Seas are cold tonight...
Stretching over Sado island
Silent clouds of stars.


haiku about Tanabata (Star Festival) appears in the chapter of  =20
Echigo=A0 Road in  Basho's
Oku no Hosomichi: The Narrow Road to Oku
araumi ya Sado ni yokotau amanogawa (Basho)

Araumi  ya: wild sea
Sado ni yokotau: stretching to Sado Isle
Amanogawa: the Milky Way (literally)

Could be a pastiche of Basho?

I will ask some poetry friends.
