Winter in Danshui

The coldest spot in Taiwan? Why, Danshui of course.

Enjoy the winter view (click arrow to start video):

Even better with a touch of Basho:

"year's end,
all
corners
of this
floating world, swept"

"come out to view
the truth of flowers blooming
in poverty"

"blue seas

breaking waves smell of rice wine
tonight's moon"

-- 松尾芭蕉 Matsuo Basho (1644-1694)

  1. 浮沉今世之急逝兮
    歲之晚矣

    於荒貧之處兮
    覓花綻真諦

    江面瀰水酒之芬兮
    今之月

  2. Thank you very much. This 賦 certainly beats the 3 original haikus stitched together, hands down.
