With Zoey's book Grass Sandals she learned about the Japanese poet Basho who lived in the 17th century. The books contains haikus. We explored this different type of poetry and Zoey even wrote a haiku of her own. She wrote it on the hat she made like Basho's hat.
Here is what she wrote:
Sunset bright and clear
Birds chirp and twitter calling
Evening crisp and clear
I am quite proud of her work. Poetry has never been a gift of mine. Mat has written some very good poetry. No haikus that I know of though.
A special thank you to Mat for everything he did for our Japanese dinner.
Well that is all for now.
One last thing to add. Zoey is sleeping tonight in her sleeping bag on the floor. Japanese style she said. Cool.
