National Poetry Month: Matsuo Basho

There's something great about short poems because they are so simple, but can say so much.   I especially like the image that this poem gives of the bee staggering because he's so overcome with pollen or the scent of the peony or both.  It seems appropriate for my first day back to school from spring break since I'm sure to be staggering a bit by the end of it!

staggers out
of the peony.
