Basho, Robert Aitken and Haiku 10

Chapter 18 is full of analogies, jumping around like puppies on excursion – dreams, butterflies, Chuang-tsu, tea ceremony, a Quaker meeting, one-on-one presentation: Serious, but play nonetheless, speaking of Basho’s delight in companionship and in intimate presentation. Thus the universe reflects itself, Aitken intimates.
